Hi, I work in year one and am getting so tired of not having time to eat/ drink/ wee at lunch time because of the preparation for the afternoon lessons / lunch meetings/ prep of work to send home. I cannot remember the last time I got chance to sit down and relax in the staffroom. It's been like this for three years and I'm losing the will. How does everyone else manage? Do you actually get any kind of reasonable 'break' within your day? This year I feel the demands of APP/ marking/ assessment have increased and I tend to be working 8-6 every day without stopping for 5 minutes for myself, plus half a day at the weekend and some work in the evenings too. This surely is unhealthy and I don't think I can keep this up much longer. Is it like this in every school?
