Dear all

I wonder if people would be willing to post the approximate NoR of their school, together with the size of their ICT (FTE).
I am trying to build a case that we are understaffed quite significantly, but need the "others schools our size have xx staff in the ICT department" argument!
Thanks.

Isn't this a simple demand/supply calcluation for your department?

Number of KS3 Lessons Per Fortnight (6 groups @ 2 lessons x 3 Year groups) =36
Number of Core KS4 Lessons ( 12 groups @ 2 lessons ) =24
Number of Option Group KS4 ( 1 group @ 5 lessons) = 5
Number of Option KS5 ( 2 groups @ 8 lessons) = 16
So you need 81 periods covered in this scenario - 2 teachers.
All good?

All figures per fortnight.

PoR: 1450

FTE: 4x ICT specialists [~40hrs each] = 160

Y7 - 12x2hrs = 24

Y8 - 12x2hrs = 24

Y9 - 12x2hrs = 24

Y10 - 4x5hrs + 2x6hrs = 32

Y11 - 5x5hrs + 2x6hrs = 37

VI form - 2x10hrs = 20

Total: 161

We lose a few hours with a specialist off to BS and we pick up a few hours from HE and a DHT to balance it out.
