Hi, I'm an NQT teaching maths and I'm seriously considering leaving the profession. I have got 2 difficult year 9 classes and I've been consistently following the school's behaviour system 2 warnings then a lunch detention. If they do not attend the lunch detention with me they get put in an after school. I am having to constantly put the same children in detentions for missing homework and misbehaving, which is exhausting as I'm having to give up the majority of my lunchtimes to deal with the poor behaviour. Some of the students are not coming to lunch detentions and are ending up in after school but I'm now getting parents complaining that their children are in detention all the time. Two parents have complained to my HoD and asked for their children to move classes and accused me of being a terrible teacher. However I've been graded outstanding or good with outstanding features in all my observations. I feel like I'm being judged constantly. I'm working at least 13 hours a day 7 days a week. I'm feeling sick about going to work and the other day I collapsed with exhaustion at my dance class I refuse to give up. At the moment I can't see any reason to carry on teaching other than to pay my rent. What can I do to help get these parents on side? I'm tempted to just stop giving detentions and let these kids run riot as they won't be complaining about me at home and I will be left alone to get on with teaching.
