I've been a head for 18 months and I'm thinking of moving on. Many of the teachers are UPS 2 or 3 and within 5-6 years off retirement and most have no interest in improving. The school has had 2 satisfactory inspections and I think we will be heading into NTI next time. I have an SLT team in name only. I really can't see how the school can move forward. Governors and L.A. are fully behind me. The teachers will not work with me, since I was forced into making 2 redundancies due to a budget deficit. I've also dealt with underperformance. If I leave without a job, how will that effect my chances of getting another job in the future ? I've had a very successful career (in a number of schools) up until now, but the negativity in the school has just worn me down.
