My school has a faculty structure with several subjects sitting within each. It's a small school, so many of the subjects have only 1 teacher in them. It's a nonsense to have individual departments, as who ensures consistency, quality of teaching and learning, and outcomes for a department of 1? So, who has responsibility for the curriculum, ensuring appropriate planning is in place, regularly reviewed and fit for purpose? The Faculty Head can ensure it's there but without specific subject knowledge, can't produce the planning themselves to the standard I expect. Is it reasonable to demand that the 1 person departments produce their own schemes, as part of the teachers' responsibility to plan effectively? If so, how can that be fair when a teacher in a large department doesn't have the responsibility to produce schemes of learning? "Give each single person department a small TLR!" This can mount up when you have a lot of subjects and, as we know, budgets are getting tighter... How do other colleagues structure their leadership to tackle these issues? All suggestions appreciated!!
