I finally handed in my resignation at the end of May for early retirement from a mostly SLT role for over 26 years. That's after several wobbles as to whether I was doing the right thing! I've signed up with a couple of supply agencies to supplement my pension and I have to say have been quite excited with the next chapter! So much so, I seem to have a new lease of life! This week one of the agencies have asked if I'm interested in an interim Deputy Headship; one to three terms. As my head is in a bit of a spin, and apart from the tax implications, I really would welcome some of your thoughts as I'm really tempted given the scenario at this particular school. Wondering in particular about whether I could put my pension on hold and whether I'd need to continue paying into one. Positives and negatives please.
