Hi All, I’m currently an NQT in a church school in a really tough catchment area. I find the children really hard to manage in terms of behaviour and the workload is really tough. It’s an outstanding school so of course higher expectations, however, it’s more than I can manage and a lot of it seems repeated or something we are told to do just days in advance. As an NQT a lot of the time I’m not sure what I need to do and I feel like a burden having to ask. I’ve decided I just don’t think the school is right for me for a lot of reasons! I’m not sure whether to just stick it out for another year or to look for something else this year? So I guess my questions are: Should I stick it out? How do I tell the head I want to look elsewhere? One more thing; the school I would like to apply to if I do decide to leave is a school I applied for last year. I got through to interview last year however didn’t go as I had already accepted this role. Would it be okay to apply again? Sorry for the long read!
