    Constant interference from SLT/Middle Managers who don't trust us to do our jobs.

    Saw that in an old age when I was at secondary. The following is a piece of banta- Leopards went to school?:confused:

    Leopards do go to school... or did.

    But we don't change our spots.

    Another problem could be the trend in modern builds and Academies to not give teachers [this might be a secondary thing] their own classroom. So you are constantly moving materials around on a trolley of some sort. Or carrying multiple crates of books.

    My biggest issue (at a grammar/academy) was behaviour management. One class had a number of racial incidents, threats of violence, bullying,etc. One student was excluded for drawing pictures of how he would kill another student (with red pen for the blood); I ended up bringing tissues, wet wipes,plasters (for when they'stabbed'themselves with their own pens), cups/water and used a bucket when one of them felt they had Ebola. I found the most effective was the use of my own phone - to call their parents in class to inform them of whatever excuse du jour. No such problems in my new school (independent) but just chattiness, etc

    Hyperaccountability, aka OFSTED paranoia.
