I have had my fair share of fending off angry and agressive t&c ( who are bigger than me) I've had kids bringing knives to school. I've had my fair share of threatening parents too. I once had a gun pulled on me and I'm no stranger to needles and knives. My career rests on the whim of my last ofsted inspector and the buck stops with me for everything. I doubt I earn more than you. I also have no bursar, no full time secretary, a tiny slt and s teaching commitment. I do the budget myself, write the SEF alone, and write all the funding bids. I have to attend all governors meetings and sub committees. Im on constant callout invade the alarm goes off (new years day last year - lovely). I oversee the running of all the extended services and if my cleaner in charge is ill I have to open up at 7am and lock up at 6.30. I'm not complaining, I love it. But don't presume that primary is all leafy and lovely. I come across lots of aggression and violence in my school community. Don't presume it's a fiddle either. If it was you'd probably have gone for it yourself.
