I'm 2 terms into induction, which is due to end at Easter as it's maternity cover. My school is great and I have lots of space to teach how I like. It is a small 600 on role rural (ish) scenario. I have been for a couple of interviews as I hope to complete at least my induction but the more urban schools in my area are so assessment driven and mechanical AF this and that, it appears to take the fun and creativity out of teaching. Perhaps this is the way schools are going, especially in the more deprived areas, and if that is the case maybe it's time for yet another early career change. I don't see the point in subscribing to a method of teaching that I find uncomfortable. My main question is really, are schools across the board heading this way or are there still some creative/relaxed school environments rather than 'exam factories' ?
