Leadership Responsibilities (if allocated, subject to experience)

Subject leaders give advice and support to all staff on the curriculum and programmes of study for the particular area for which they are responsible. They will resource their area with the support of an annual budget and are responsible for monitoring how the area is delivered across school and for evaluating its impact on pupil learning.

Specifically, responsibilities will be in the following areas:

  • Intent Statement. Leaders will develop their intent statement incorporating the school’s aims and vision. Any relevant policies will be shared with Governors in line with their policy timetable.

  • Scheme of Work. Leaders will establish a scheme of work for the subject, where appropriate in collaboration with other teaching staff.
  • Planning. Leaders will have access to and monitor teachers planning to ensure adequate coverage of the subject and to ensure work is not repeated or duplicated. This is not the case for subjects that are solely taught by the subject leader only.
  • Monitoring. Leaders will monitor the delivery of their subject/area across the school and evaluate the impact on pupil learning. Leaders will contribute to the School Development Plan by producing an annual subject action plan that is reviewed termly.
  • Pupil Progress. Leaders will have an overview of pupil progress across the school. Using school performance data, subject leaders will identify areas of strength and weakness and determine whether progress is good, outstanding or in need of improvement.
  • Resources. Leaders will ensure that there are an adequate range of resources to meet pupil need and that these resources are effectively organised.
  • Budget. Leaders will manage an annual budget effectively and efficiently to purchase learning resources for the subject.

Other

  • Teachers are expected to contribute to the cooperative life of the school through effective participation in staff meetings, department meetings and curriculum working groups as laid out in the annual meetings timetable.
  • Attend and participate in assemblies, register pupils and supervise pupils during break times or other planned activities.
  • Participate in arrangements for performance management and take responsibility for your own continuous professional development.

General Duties

  • To maintain personal and professional development to meet the changing demands of the job, participate in appropriate training activities and encourage and support staff in their development and training.
  • To undertake such other duties, training and/or hours of work as may be reasonably required and which are consistent with the general level of responsibility of this job.
