My head in his wisdom has employed lots of one to one tutors to help those underachieving in english and maths reach their targets. These one to one sessions with pupils are only happening during drama, art, pe and music. As a result he doesn't want a 2-tier system and wants to make a blanket rule that no music lessons can take place during core subjects for pupils in KS4. How the hell are we meant to manage the timetabling of all of that? We have no admin support, no technology support and no finance departmental support and just 2 of us in the department working in a school with 1400 on roll..... Anyone had similar experiences that can offer suggestions or share stories? BTW the head also shared the possiblity of banning all extra curricular music and peri work in school because of the disruption across the school BUT added, I'm not trying to decimate the music department....hmmm...and then he wonders why we have so few taking the subject at KS4.....I wonder?
