This is a quick question what is the difference between a Lead teacher and a deputy head in your opinion or are they the same thing? I ask as would like a more definitive definition as in essence I am doing the deputy head post. I am safeguarding lead, exams officer and in charge of four subjects. I do book scrutiny and learning walks/ observations etc Our staff is very small and we don't have the same pay and conditions as a LEA or mainstream school. Any thoughts on this would be useful and thank you in advance.
