Hi, I'm currently Acting Head of English in a mainstream school and have applied for a curriculum lead in English post in a PRU. Many of my students in my current, challenging school are referred to this unit and I'm fully aware of the types of students the unit gains. I do not enjoy my role currently, it's far too muc work and I certainly never wanted to be HOF. I have a very good relationship with our difficult students and am always getting comments on my relationships with students in observations, stating how positive they are. I've visited the PRU and really liked it. I'm ready for a new challenge and having trained at my current school, feel ready to wok with new people in a different environment. The PRU has had outstanding OFSTED reports since 2005 and the people I met on my visit were lovely and welcoming. At my current workplace, I've had many negatve comments about this possible move. SLT are saying it could damage my career. Any advice/experiences?
