I started a new agency placement after Christmas and I know already it is doomed to non completion through my own lack of interest. The staff are nice, the kids are nice, the building is nice,the canteen is nice. There is a nice amount of photocopying and printing allowed, the staffroom has nice chairs,the toilets are nice and clean and it's actually a nice commute, leading to possibly a really nice commute in Spring. So why is it doomed? It is school policy that students are allowed to listen to music on their phones if they have a temporary teacher. Face palm.
