I'm currently in my second year as a Deputy at a Primary school. Last year I taught groups in the mornings and had the afternoons as leadership time and to cover classes where teachers were on courses/subject leadership time. This year I am in class three days as a job share and have 2 days out as Deputy time. Whilst this is less teaching time than last year I am really struggling with both the teaching and leadership roles. I feel that I am getting by in class for three days and then chasing my tail for the next two. I have more responsibility than I did last year and am struggling to find time to be the quality of teacher and deputy I want to be. If anyone has any experience or advice on how to balance the two roles I would really appreciate it.
