TO "Fireman Sam" Thanks. I have only been teaching for just over 6 months. Everything I have learned I can assure you has not come from this school. Some from PGCE but most I have made up as I have gone along - "trial and error" - and seen what works and what doesn't. PGCE/NQT year should be full of this stuff. I certainly would help PGCE/NQTs out with it in the future if I stick to teaching in the long term. But yes - even I am worried about how long I will continue. I think at the moment it is just this school which is putting me off. My PGCE schools were fantastic and I didn't doubt the future. In six months hopefully I will be back with that as a long term perspective again.
