Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice with regards to my role at my school. I am an experienced EYFS teacher and been in my current school for 1 year. I have previously had a middle leader role as the lead of art at a previous school but it was a one form entry and we had training from the deputy head and a lot of support. On the last day of school last academic year in my current school, I found out I had been given the humanities lead for the whole school (geog and history), from reading the staff handbook! Not even a conversation with me prior to this at all. I have never experienced this before as in previous schools teachers were invited to apply. I then found out that I am the only teacher in the school who has been given a big subject area to lead on my own and when I asked the deputy head about a TLR, he laughed at me and said no. Have since found out that no other teachers get TLRs either, apart from one last year because she made a huge fuss. I really don't want this role, it was just thrown in my lap. Can I say no to it or do I just have to do it? It seems no one in my school says no to anything and this is intimidating. I am also aware that the school hardly ever give out extra PPA or time out to do extra work so I know this is going to take up a lot of extra time when I can fit it in around classroom work. I feel completely out of my depth as it is for 14 classes and I have only ever taught EYFS so have no idea about the curriculum for the rest of the school, the topics or how its taught. On top of this we are due an Ofsted inspection this year so since the get go this term we have had so much pressure put on us, including telling subject leads that they have to know their subjects inside out and upside down. It has stressed me out to the point where I went home crying every day last week. Both the head and deputy know this and I have told them I feel very overwhelmed by it. Their response has been that other (already overworked) members of staff such as the assistant head, will be there to support me and that I am an experienced teacher so I'll be fine. I'm really not sure what to do, I have already decided to leave the school at the end of the academic year but I am not sure what to do about the subject lead role? Does anyone have any advice or clear cut knowledge of what I can say no to? Thanks in advance.
