    Mine is the Deputy Head who also is the Director of Maths & Computing.

    He lets us get on with it, we have a meeting every now and then and he controls the budget.

    Tells us what he want and we advise.......works very well, but hten again he trusts us and knows we do a good job.

    Re: Who's your line manager?

    I am the Network Manager here and my line manager is the Deputy Head in charge of ICT. He speaks with the ICT Co-ordinator with regards to ICT in the curriculum, but leaves all the technicial decisions to me. I am the line manager of the ICT Technician who on day to day issues see's me but if anything can not be resolved he goes to the Deputy Head.

    We also have a deputy head in charge of support staff who works closely with the School Manager although we have very little too do with either of them.

    Re: Who's your line manager?

    Well i am in a weird situation, started working here 5 years of go, and my line manager was a maths teacher who had admin network responsibilities (upgrading SIMS basically).

    he went on long term sickness and eventually retired, the reins were then handed over to the head of ICT ( great bloke), but as he was an english/music/ict teacher (this is what you get when you work in a small school <700 kids), his schedule didn't allow for weekly meetings etc. i was up until sept 2005 the only ICT tech in the school(and on the verge of madness).

    Then the site manager (yeah i know), thought "i know a way to get my finger in another pie", and took on line management responsibilities for me, which for the past 3 years has been great i can tell you(not).

    the best thing he has ever done is get more technicians into the school

    he retires next year so who knows whats gonna happen then 8O

    Re: Who's your line manager?

    I am the "Computer Systems Manager" - my Line Manager is (one of) the Deputy Head(s) who also teaches ICT (and regarding another thread, is a Music Teacher by trade!) Very good relationship - we tend to meet to discuss things, sometimes we invite the Head of ICT. He says this is what we want to do - how do we do it? And I am pretty much left to decide on the technicalities. I am the line manager of the ICT Technician.

    Re: Who's your line manager?

    I am the ICT Manager and line manage two support staff - one a technician and one a technician who is also a retired ICT teacher. I used to report directly to the Head, which was OK except for the issue of time. So I now report to a new Assistant Head who has cross-curricular responsibiltiy for ICT development and is my line manager. This works really well.
