Hi all, It has been a long time since I last posted but I am desperate for advice and really couldn't think of anywhere else to turn. I have been a teacher for about 6 years and my first 5 1/2 years were brilliant - always good/outstanding lessons, fantastic relationships with pupils and colleagues, supported colleagues across the borough, etc, etc. In February I moved to another school to take up a TLR post (leading a year group - 3 classes) and things have gone downhill since then. for a fact they did/still do. My problem is that one of them is best friends with the DHT and it is impossible to say anything against this teacher. The other is an NQT (which makes me feel even more worthless - how can I let an NQT belittle me - this isn't meant as derogatory towards NQT's?!) who is very strong minded and knows how to say/do the right thing in certain situations. She complains about everything to her NQT mentor (my direct line manager) and then I am called into the office to explain myself. I make year group leader decisions and they are then questioned by my colleagues and then overturned by senior management. During PPA sessions my line manager comes in and "asks" about the lessons this week - and (as if by coincidence) the "mistakes" I have made are highlighted in front of the year group (and sometimes other staff) I will add here that the mistakes I have made DO NOT impact the learning of the children and have only ever been mistakes on the "answer" sheets that I create to support teacher marking. Further to all of this,I was observed recently and graded as requires improvement by the DHT and my line manager. I have been told I need to be "humble" and go and talk to my 2 year group colleagues and ask them for advice/guidance. I went off yesterday and spent most of the day crying - something I haven't done at least 20 year - and just couldn't imagine myself going back to that place, EVER! I know I need to go in and discuss with the HT but he is also very close friends with the DHT and my year group colleagues. I just don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
