I'm interested to hear about the workload of other Heads of Dept, because I'm struggling with mine. As Head of RE in a Catholic school I have 5 KS4 classes (meaning a heavy marking load). We don't have a chaplain, so I have to organise all the liturgical stuff and retreat programmes myself. I'm also responsible for PHSE and have a KS4 form group. The standard allocation of non-contact in the school is 3 hours, and as Head of Dept get one additional hour each week. How does this compare to other people? Does this sound reasonable?
