Hi all, currently working in an RI school which is desperately trying to reach good and beyond in the next OFSTED inspection. As you can imagine, it is currently a very stressful place to work currently, and while I am not adverse to hard work, it's starting to bring me down. Some examples: regular book scrutinies to check that the demanding marking policy is followed correctly, lessons must be planned following a pro-forma and emailed to SLT before the following week starts, data regarding student progeess to be inputted on target tracker every few days, lots of after school meetings each week, head is often moody, SLT quite disorganised, generally quite a stressful atmosphere which feels more critical than supportive. I know none of this sounds probably sounds uncommon, but my question is, are there actually schools out there that are actually nice and enjoyable to work in or is this kind of just how teaching is at the moment? Could the grass be a bit greener somewhere else?!
