I have recently moved from a good all girl's school with relatively great behaviour to an outstanding co-ed inner city school with much more challenging behaviour. My interview for this new school was very impressive, based on feedback during and after my appointment so I had very high hopes that I would not only be able to cope in this new school but that I would also be able to further my career and move up the responsibilities ladder. However, things have gotten progressively worse since I have started, including a 3 for a lesson observation, due to student non-compliance. I have had multiple student / parent complaints about my teaching, including and incident when students went directly to the head during a break time to voice their complaints about me. My stress levels have skyrocketed, my mental health and physical health has deteriorated so I will be seeing attending councilling sessions as of next week. My partner has been incredibly supportive throughout this year, but she has voiced her growing concern that we are drifting apart due to my overall lack of time for her and my continual low mood. I feel like I need to leave this post for my own wellbeing and the well-being of the department, however a member of staff has already left the department before Christmas for similar reasons and we have not been able to replace them. If I were to leave before Easter I do not know how the department would cope. I am seeking advice on where to go from here; do I tough it out for the rest of the year despite knowing things are probably only going to get worse, or do I leave and put the department in an even worse position?
