My apologies. I imagined that the delegation problems were due to smaller school size (I think I must have merged two threads in my mind). It tends (but not exclusively) to be a small school rather than large school issue. How often on here do we hear about large SLTs all fighting for more leadership time at the expense of their teaching load. As Marshall says, it will be the contacts you make that will help. Nothing more to add I'm afraid. Except add my very best wishes.
