There has been a dramatic fall in roll at my school (-400 pupils in 5-10 years), now redundancies among ordinary teachers but also SMT. I am also aware of serious failings in management. I am looking for other jobs as a starting point and having lengthy discussions with the Head who is listening and doing her best but inexperienced and struggling with difficult circumstances - inheriting massive financial and other problems from outgoing Head. Other members of SMT have been at the school for decades therefore must share at least some of the responsibility for some of the problems and also don't seem able/willing to put them right. What else can/should I do? The problems I've recently discovered relate to planning for the next academic year on a whole school level (i.e. lack of it) and will affect how well the pupils are prepared for the new GCSEs and many other areas and significantly add to staff workload and stress as they try to do the best by their students in systems which are not up to the job. Have asked the Head to respond to my concerns in writing. Should the Governors also be told? It may be they are part of the problem in that they mean well but are simply not up to the job so may not be willing/able to do anything even if they knew the extent of the problems (almost certain they don't). Any advice welcome. It's a really difficult situation.
