In our school:

They let go guidance teachers,

Changed the names from guidance teachers to Pastoral Care Workers,

Changed the names of the Assistant Heads to Depute Heads

What is the fucking point?!! Theyre still the muther fucking same people doing the same jobs! No one will take any notice.

    We got changed into some company.

    Head plus other important people = Senior Magagement Team

    Head of Department = Department Manager

    Head of year = Pastoral Manager and/or Year Group Manager

    And they scrapped the title of head girl/boy and replaced it with something stupid, but i cant remember what because that changed just as I left.

    There were loads of little changes like that when they got the new headmistress (she has a management degree, would you guess) :mad:

    Oh, and it was jsut a minor change on the face of it...
    She changed the year names- When i was going through the school it was 1e,2e,3e,4c,5c etc but she changed it to 7,8,9 etc.

    And then it was frowned upon to use the old style names, but we found that sooo hard. Like changing to metric again. It got so confusing trying to figure out what year it meant people were in when we were trying to organise house activities...

    For the fact they are trying to get out of sexism what does manager portray? (yes male) teacher is more neutral, manager male biased"

    Its stupid, I call our a tutor for gods sakes!

    The years changed all over at one point so that it runs smoothly throughout,

    Infants
    reception - lower tier
    1 - Middle Tier
    2 - Higher Tier
    Juniors
    3 - 1
    4 - 2
    5 - 3
    6 - 4
    Seniors
    7 - 1st grade
    8 - 2nd grade
    9 - 3rd grade
    10 - 4th grade
    11 - 5th grade
    6TH FORM
    12 - Lower 6th
    13 - Upper sixth

    I prefer the 1-13 instead as it shows continuity however i have grown up with it so it may just be me!
