Do you have to co-ordinate a subject?

    I currently co-ordinating 3 foundation subjects. My head has made it sound that it is part of the teaching standards to co-ordinate a subject. I can't see it anywhere in the teaching standards. Is she correct that I have to do them or can I give them up? I don't need any career progression.

    I don't know of anyone in any school who doesn't lead a subject area, or two, or more. In my previous school I led Maths, PE and Forest School. And I was 'a teacher'.

    As for 'giving them up' - hmmmm.....

    You can't be held accountable for them unless you have a TLR, but absolutely you can be asked to contribute towards curriculum development, etc.
