I really fancy a change of scene having worked in the same school for nearly ten years. What do you think the chances are of requesting a transfer within my authority? I know Im lucky to be in a job but can't help feeling a bit trapped and short of options. Also my travelling costs are £200 a month at moment so would love a shorter commute which would help with childcare costs etc. Any ideas? I know there's a vacancy coming up in my local school but I'd imagine it'll go as a temporary post - can I request a move?
