I have got an interview with with a mixed reception year 1 class vacancy as a possibility. The head teacher seems great and the school seemed extremely creative. I have taught eyfs for 7 years and year 1 for 2 years. My current school is a really nice infant school but it has been taken over by a multi Academy Trust 3 years ago and they are a complete nightmare. Everyone feels very insecure about the amount of unfair criticism we are having and there is huge distrust about the underhand tactics used by people above the head teacher. That is why the head teacher is leaving at Christmas. I am prepared to drop down to the main pay scale just to get out. I am just wondering if I can manage the timetabling and organisation of of reception and year 1 one without being a massive ball of stress like I have been in the last year or so. I'm just concerned that maybe I am jumping ship too fast and should hold on on for a straight year 1 post? Or maybe my confidence has been so shattered that I really need to just go for it it as it is a fixed term contract with a view to extended and if I don't like it I can just leave in July.
