Hi, I am currently employed on a 50/50 split timetable in Maths and Drama. I'm a trained Drama teacher. My school has just announced that they will be making 1.5 Drama teachers redundant, however have a surplus of 0.6 in Maths (they haven't taken my current hours out, if I were to leave then they would have 1.1 left over in Maths). From a strategic point of view it obviously makes sense to pin me into taking a full time Maths role (this has already been suggested as a 'safety net' by a senior member of the school), something as a trained Drama teacher I am not willing to do. I guess my question is, can my school offer me a full time maths role even though it is not my specialism? and if I decline it will I lose my entitlement to a redundancy pay out? I intend to make it clear that at the absolute maximum I will teach 0.6 Maths. We are currently in special measures (this report was before I got to the school) with a terrible report about our Maths department so they will struggle to attract Maths teachers. The reason I was originally employed on a 50/50 split is because they couldn't get anyone to fill a maths vacancy, so I'm hoping beyond hope that this will play in my favour. Any ideas/input on this will be gratefully appreciated. I have contacted my union but have yet to hear back!
