This is the question I am most often asked, currently. I am struggling with a very difficult class that all other teachers in the school refused to teach and my (experienced) phase leader/PPA cover walked out on a few weeks ago. I arrived new to the school this year and was given this class, blind and oblivious to it. What does support look like in your school? My previous experience of "support" in a difficult class turned out to be evidence gathering by SLT and bullying to get me out as an NQT. It took me a year following that to get back on my feet and into a good place, mentally. Then I started here. Now I feel like I'm sliding right back down the same path, feeling like a failure all over again. So, what might actual support look like?
