Hard, hard class, new (work intensive) assessment system, highly unsupportive year group, new planning,new ways to do reading (but no one seems to know how to do it yet). I'm highly experienced, yet nothing I say gets listened to, with very little management support, and fatally poor communication about anything. How easy is it to cease being a year group leader mid year, even if there is no one else to do it? My wife and I have a second baby on the way and I don't think the TLR is worth it for the stress this is causing. I've never, ever known a year to be this bad and it's only the beginning!
