    Not so, unless your resignation dates differ from the norm, you cannot leave until Easter now.

    I would like to add that I think, when offering jobs, schools should be ready to provide a written contract and a list of expectations re out of hours work BEFORE expecting someone to agree. I think it is wrong to expect an answer on the day. Doesn't happen in other jobs and everyone manages to recruit. They should also be clear about salary and there should be room for consideration and negotiation.

    Unless, of course, your HT agrees. Which they might do to save money, to avoid having a disgruntled employee etc.

    I intend resigning this academic year. If possible before Easter. I hope HT will be reasonable. I'll come in for my 6th form and GCSE classes, but not the rest if i need to go before Easter. I can see no reason for HT to hold onto someonewho doesn't want to be there.

    In the longer run I expect that's true. But for this year if there are timetabled classes that you are timetabled to be standing in front of the HT will presumably will want you there however much you don't want to be. Someone needs to be there teaching the class, so if not you, who?

    Someone who actually WANTS to be there?

    And the headteacher has that person on staff now waiting to take over your timetabled classes?

    I wish!
    And that is indicative of the state of education...........so many shortages of teachers.
    I remember when you could get a couple of hundred applicants per job. Now you are lucky to get one.............it's a lottery win if you get 2.
