Roles and Responsibilities

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Roles and Responsibilities at Greenford High School Task 1: I have chosen to identify the roles and responsibilities of the people who work at Greenford High School. These three people are: 1. A Faculty Leader - Mr Manby 2. A Science Teacher - Ms Saleem 3. A Support Worker - Angela An organisational triangle shows the level of responsibility each person has. The person at the bottom has less responsibility then the person above. It is also known as a 'hierarchy'. This organisational triangle shows the responsibilities each person has at Greenford High School: Faculty Leader - Mr Manby: Mr Manby is the faculty leader who works at Greenford High School. He is also the assistant head teacher and is a member of the senior leadership team. When Mr Manby joined the school in 1993, he was a newly qualified teacher. He then got promoted to deputy head and head of house. After five years, he then became head of maths for five years and is now finally assistant head teacher and has been for four years. Mr Cramer (the headteacher) is in charge of Mr Manby. Mr Manby is then in charge of: the head of PE (Ms Joyce), head of ICT (Mr Smith), head of Art (Mr Bonner) and the head of ICT Technical Support (Mr Croft). As their line manager, Mr Manby has to monitor their work to ensure the highest teaching standard possible. Mr Manby has got 10 'O' levels (GCSE's) and 3 A levels in Maths, Biology and Geography. He has also received a BSC - HONS (Bachelor of Science honours) in construction engineering at Sheffield University. There are a number of ways people are motivated financially; the main reason being money. Other ways of motivation include bonuses for doing their job well or holiday bonuses, a pay rise which increases every year which will encourage the worker to stay longer, piece rate payment (when you get paid according to how much you make) ...read more.

Ms Saleem has to have a wide range of skills as a science teacher and a form tutor. She has to have good numeracy and ICT skills so she can draw up graphs on spreadsheet and compare them over the weeks to see if the student's are improving or not. She has to have good communications, speaking and listening skills like every teacher at Greenford High school as without this they won't be able to teach the students well enough. Ms Saleem has many responsibilities. These include: Assessing the students work and giving them feedback of what went well and what could be improved as well as monitoring their progress, delivering lessons that engage student and help them to achieve. If the students are underachieving or a arriving constantly late to lessons, then Ms Saleem has to report the students the year team or parent and a member of the SLT. Ms Saleem has to have access to SIMM in order to do this. With SIMMS she can see when the students aren't coming to lessons or are coming late. She can look through previous records to see if this is happening constantly Ms Saleem teaches science lessons to students in years 7 -11 and only biology to students in year 12 and 13. For the student in years 12 and 13, she has to make a decision on whether she wants to allow certain student to do the course; for instance people she knows who will do well. Ms Saleem has 10 A* - C GCSE's and 3 & a half A level's. She has also received a Bachelor of Science (BSC) in biological science and a PGCE in biology science. This helps her to perform her job well as she has more experience and knowledge. This means she can give better teaching to the students compared to if she only had fewer GCSE's or if she didn't have a BSC or PGCSE. ...read more.

Conclusion

This costs the school more money as they have to pay the supply teachers as well as the people who are off. Every teacher has to attend the INSET training. This training is where the teachers discuss how to develop skills and further their teaching strategies. Technological: Technology and software is changing rapidly which Greenford High school has to keep up to date with. One of these software's is called SIMMS (Single Inline Memory Module).The school uses SIMMS to keep a record of the students details such as name date of birth etc, a copy of the students timetables and is used take the register on a daily basis. SIMMS is a fairly new software so the teachers are required to undergo training in how to use it especially the teachers who have little or very limited ICT skills like Angela. Another software that is changing is Microsoft Office. Office 2007 has changed completely compared to previous versions such as the interface and where buttons are placed. Greenford High School is currently using Office 2007 which they upgraded from Office 2003. The rapid change of Office 2007 meant it was harder for teachers to use so they had to receive training on how to use it. Almost every class in Greenford High School has got an interactive whiteboard (IWB). The IWB is a screen that displays a wider and bigger version of the monitor it is connected to. The IWB uses a touch surface so when you touch it, the pointer moved to that position although the ones in Greenford High School only responds to a special pen. There is also a remote that comes with the interactive whiteboard that can zoom on it, freeze it and turn it off. This hardware is useful for giving presentation or showing videos as the whole class can see it. The teachers need to know how to function then pen and the remote so they are given training on how to use it. ?? ?? ?? ?? As Applied Business ...read more.
