Our budget cuts are so immense that the LA top brass have been to see me and announced that I have to sack my KS2 teacher and teach full time myself - as well as doing my Headship work. We are a small school with only 60 pupils, from 3 - 18. This is along with cutting my 2 TAs hours to next to none, and so there would be an NNEB (mornings only) with a TA in the nursery, a full time KS1 teacher, and then me teaching the whole of KS2 (ignoring the fact that we don't have a room big enough to seat them all) full time, with a couple of hours TA support at the most daily. Most afternoons there will only be 2 members of staff in school with the 52 full time pupils. We won't be able to do any SEN support, go on trips, take children out to sports events etc etc. And subject leadership, which is on our Ofsted action plan would be nigh on impossible. Can they do this? I have come tothe conclusion that the aim of the LA is to bring the school down so that they can fetch in Ofsted, get me throw out as an inadequate leader and then they can federate with another school or shut us down completely, with the convenient reason that the school was failing. Help!! What should I be saying and doing?? Can I stop any of this happening? Are there any other HTs out there that teach full time?? Advice needed!
