    Curriculum IT is line managed separately to whole-school/technical IT, but there is a good working relationship and cross-over

    We've just been through a bit of a restructure here - so our new structure is:

    SMT IT person --> ICT Manager --> Network Manager / MIS Manager --> Senior IT Technician / Executive Support Technician --> Junior IT Technician

    Head > Deputy Head > NM > Technician

    But to be honest, the only role the Deputy Head plays is as my line manager and carrys out my performance management. All IT issues / developments / decisions are me (NM).

    Yes he does as its me

    I know this place takes time up but I am indeed there for him

    Its actually:
    HT > Deputy HT > Head of DT > NM > IT Tech (and other techs and apprentice when we get to that point!)

    Places where I have worked its gone as follows

    Head/Principle > Deputy Head/Deputy Principle > ICT Co-ordinator/Manager (or) Bursar/Business Manager > Network Manager > Assistant/Deputy Network Manager > Senior Technician > Junior Technician > Apprentice

    Some steps removed as applicable but generally that's the rule

    Yup

    They also have the title of Director of Specialism (were a Tech. College) and Faculty Director of Technology (as IT, Art, Textiles, Catering etc are under that banner) but they are head of DT as in Des Tech

    I tend to think of it this way ...

    Me > God > Everyone else ...

    Somehow I don't think many people believe it though.

    Head > Deputy Head (Learning & Teaching) > SIMS and Timetable manager soon to renamed Technical Logistics Leader (me) & Assistant Head (ICT Curriculum) - Yes we are joint) > ICT Managed Service Provider

    Means every decision goes to me and the Assistant Head and then we Direct the Manager Service Provider like the old ICT Systems Manager did before BSF

    Edit -> Curricular ICT is separate to technical ICT directions, and has been for years, means one department does not get preferential treatment

    From a performance management perspective it is:
    Head> Deputy Head> Senior Tech
    but from a 'boss' perspective it is:
    Head>Head of ICT> Senior Tech

    For me it's Head > Tech > Head of ICT (LOL) and for performance management it's Head > Tech.

    From reading the thread I guess the structure really depends on the size and speciality of the school?

    (I am figthing for more support (i.e another technician) and the NM title in a +600 pupil, 297 client middle school but then again I do have an NM interview on Thursday as I've given up trying!)
