I am currently MPS2 but acting as a HOD in a one man department. Im a little confused by the whole situation. I think that i am correct in saying that S/C will be scrapped as schools will no longer get any points from the s/c grades so why would SLT want to maintain a S/C. Am i correct in this logic. Secondly, i have about half the year group who opt for the full course RS. With RS being a compulsory subject that students must take my SLT are proposing that RS be taken by all pupils in Y9 and 10. This will obviously void my options course and a fear the motivation of students. Is anyone else in this situation whereby they already have a very successful full course and are going to lose this because all students will be made to do full course. With this in mind, what alternatives are there for timetabling. RS is of course something all pupils are required to do. Is anyone tackling this problem by keeping the full course as an option and trying something else with those who have not elected it as an option. Perhaps collapsed timetable. Can you get away from teaching it to the other students in 10 and 11. What is the legal requirements these days? Help please. I feel lost with this issue and presenting idea on Tuesday back to SLT.
