Hello All, I would really appreciate your thoughts about what I should do in this situation.,,, In April I accepted a position of 'Teacher of Drama' and I was told by the school that an English teacher (currently teaching some drama) would be acting as HOD - planning SOW, tracking all pupils, completing year 11 GCSE students, supporting me etc. I visited my school for a few days in July to find out that a lot of things have changed.......what a shocker! I will now be responsible for all students in the school, including completing the year 11 GCSE group. I will be expected to create and lead all of my own SOW and track all of these pupils too. I will have to organise moderation and examinations for the GCSE groups, as well as organising all extra-curricular productions and school trips. As an NQT I feel this is a lot to be taking on - but as this was not explained to me at interview I feel I can't back out now. I have not seen my contract yet so do not actually know what they have stated are my responsibilities. Is it right to be starting at MPS1 if I have all of these extra responsibilities?? Your thoughts and advice would be much appreciated!
