Hello, I'm new to the forums. I qualified a year back and am in a temporary full-time position. I'm from an ethnic minority background and am working as a secondary teacher in a mainly Caucasian school. I started a couple of weeks back and am dealing with racism from pupils in the corridors (not just mild racism either, not that that would be ok!). SLT haven't caught the pupils responsible and I am dealing with behaviour issues with my KS4 pupils too. Bad behaviour aside, the racism is really getting to me. This weekend, I am sitting feeling anxious about going back into school tomorrow to face the pupils. I hide out in my department at lunchtime to avoid the corridors and I stay in my room until after the children have left the school premises because I don't want to have to face more racism. Does anybody have any tips for the anxiety? I am not sure SLT can really catch the pupils responsible as the corridors were so busy during these incidences, and as I am new, I do not know the names of most pupils in the school anyway! I'm starting to suffer from a lot of anxiety due to this. It just sits and festers in the pit of my stomach. Thank you for reading.
