Dear All, My boyfriend is in a new post TLR and has turned around the worst class in the school within half a term. He has been observed and praised. His team are now happier than they've been in years - two experienced teachers were all set to jack in their jobs before he took the team on and his style of encouragement and praising strengths has worked wonders. The key stage is now calm and functioning well. The head demands planning in every week, he has used Hamilton Trust and various things (becasue nothing has been handed to him) but she wants the plans written in HER way - very long, drawn out and documents that he finds unusable in his day to day work. We have NO homelife any more and last night I told him that he is so miserable that I can't bear to go on like this. I was supportive and feel rotten now, am trying to be supportive. Can anyone share their experience and which scheme works well for Y5 English teaching? Every member of staff in this school has been affected by the heavy workload and stress to the point where they take longterm sick leave. I just want to help him.
