Hi all, I have a question that’s really worrying me about whether it is okay to move schools after the NQT year. There is nothing wrong with the school, in fact it is very supportive and I am enjoying my role at the moment. The reason I want to move is for personal reasons. I moved back home from London/Brighton so I could afford the training course and I don’t know anyone where I live. I am young and feel very lonely and isolated and I want to move to a town where my friends are so I can have a purpose to my life that isn’t just school. I do feel quite depressed and feel a move away would improve my mental health as well as expanding my teaching experience. So, would it be okay to leave after your first year? My heart is telling me to go but I am worried it won’t put me in good light professionally.
