I've received a letter from the Head saying that they won't be able to answer my request for flexible working until he has "the staffing requirements or curriculum for September." Can anyone tell me when secondary schools get this information or does it vary? Thanks
When do your yr 9s (or 8s?) make their gcse options? That would impact on timetabling. The rest shouldn't impact you because surely if someone resigns they would be replaced regardless of your application?
But they might be replaced by a "cheaoer" person thus freeing money up. Yes, that's a good point about options. I'll have to find out. I think however that on the whole a few students are forced to do options they don't want because the most popular options fill up. A few of my students have said they were forced to do my subject!!
