Hi, I wonder if anyone could advise? I am an NQT due to finish my NQT year in July. I was taken on on a years contract and fortunately this contract has verbally been extended for another year, to which I have verbally agreed. However, since Christmas, I have been suffering a great deal with Anxiety and have been feeling as if I ought to get out of the job all together! I cannot complain about the School, and my progress has been fine...I'm just so exhausted much of the time and feel that there must be more to life! Despite these feelings, I don't want to chuck in the towel altogether? I've worked so hard and feel if I had some balance I could probably enjoy the job alot more and not be so anxious! But how do I go about asking my Head this? Is this a huge no no unless you have medical grounds - i.e. Doctor suggested? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
