I'm a new headteacher in a small primary school. The school has been coasting for some years 2 satisfactory Ofsted Reports. The staff are very cosy at the school and have no intentions of ever moving on. They don't like any of the changes I plan to make and have said that the Ofsted reports are wrong and the school is good. The staff write anonymous letters about me to the governors, saying that I'm not a fit leader because I do not care enough about the staff. Intially the governors were very supportive but they know most of the teachers personally and have conversations with them about my style of leadership. I feel very undermined and would like to leave and start a fresh. I've taught for 14 years in 3 different schools with an exemplary record. I've been at this school for just 6 months. I'm very worried that I won't be able to get another job, I'd start as a deputy again but I'm not sure anyone would want a deputy who has been a head before as it looks like a failure to lead. How would I explain this to a future employer ? What about a reference from my current employer ?
