    Hi everyone, this is my first time posting.
    I’m trying to research what acceptable looks like when it comes to English Department staffing.

    please can you tell me how many kids you have per year group and how many in your department?

    we have 180 per year.
    5 full time
    2 part time (0.8)
    1 non-specialist teacher in our department.
    Many thanks!!

    300 per year (with 400 in 6th)
    11 FT (although one of those is LMT so reduced timetable)
    4 PT (2 of those are 0.8)
    This includes staffing of media and drama as these fall within English and we teach both lang and lit at A level. A number of English staff also teach the EPQ.
    Media and drama each have a leader as does KS3 English, KS4 English and KS5 lit.
