I'm looking for the best way to go about resigning from my HoD role but I want to remain HoY. I am the only teacher with a dual role at my school and have not been paid for the HoD role for nearly 3 years but have been paid the TLR for the the HOY. I have stuck at the dual role for a period of time as it was beneficial to my timetable but this has not been as much of a case this year. I have discussed this with the Head on a few occasions but nothing has changed, should I put it formally in writing to them and the Head of Governors? Can they refuse?
