Hi, As a regular reader of the forums, I have benefited from so much useful advice, and wanted to thank those who take the time to support others. My dilemma is a sadly familiar tale of stress and workload, and I was wondering if there is anyone out there who is able to offer any advice on how I cope with the coming weeks and months. I returned to work following almost a full academic year's maternity leave in July 2015. I hold a TLR position, which I was allowed to retain despite reducing my hours to 0.8 in order to have one day each week with our baby. The only other time I have posted on here was back in the summer regarding an issue with payroll and my reduction in hours, which was thankfully resolved. I mentioned when posting then that my timetable is incredibly heavy when compared to full time colleagues in similar roles, as I teach an almost full-time timetable in four days, and have virtually no time to do my TLR role. I raised this as a concern in school in September, and was told that there is no alternative because of the subject specialisms needed. I have had a look at the timetables of all those in similar roles, and my non-teaching time is undoubtedly significantly reduced, even when calculated pro rata to account for my day at home. There have been many changes made at school whilst I was on maternity leave, many of which affect my TLR role. The workload is therefore heavier than ever, and I have significantly more to do than when I was last doing this job, with the time allocated to do it substantially reduced. In addition to this, I have been told today that following year 11 mocks I am now expected to run booster/intervention groups every evening I am there except the scheduled meeting night. I am in a state of panic. I could manage one, or even two evenings, but not three plus a weekly meeting. The only way I keep my head above water is to use that precious time at the end of the school day. I can't stay for more than two hours owing to the nursery pick-up, which I have to do as my partner (not a teacher) has a horrendously long commute and simply wouldn't get there in time. Asking grandparents/family to do it isn't an option as they all live in another area of the country. This year is proving to be so difficult in so many ways, but I honestly feel as though I cannot cope with this additional demand. I already work until 10:00/11:00 most evenings, and most of the weekend. I know I am lucky enough to have my day with our baby, but it breaks my heart on other days to hear her shout for Mummy and my partner tell her, "No you can't see Mummy now, Mummy has to work". I think the most difficult thing is the lack of sleep, as our baby has yet to sleep through the night and will only settle for Mummy during the night. This means that I am functioning on about three or four hours sleep on school nights. I know the sleep issues are probably exacerbating my stress, and I know that issue doesn't belong on this forum. I also know that this will pass as our baby grows up. However, if anyone has been through a similar situation at work and could offer any advice, I would be so grateful. I am searching for a new job, but at the moment I can't even see my way through to the end of the week. I simply cannot do everything I am being asked to do in the time available, but the current culture of the school is that you give up something else in order to work. It doesn't matter if you're already working until midnight, you're simply expected to find the time. I know that I can't do this any more. My family means too much to me. Many thanks for reading.
