Roll on half term

    I've been a head for over ten years and I've had one of the worst half terms ever, topped off by one of the worst days ever today. I'm feeling battered by parents who take their children's word at face value, social issues that are way out of my control but impact on everything we try to do in school, and lack of funds that means we can't have reliable heating or fix the plumbing. Thank goodness for my fantastic staff, and roll on half term!

    That story sounds way too familiar... You could work at my school!

    Very familiar. Thank goodness you are lucky with your staff. I hope they know you value them.

    It's one of my top priorities to make sure they know. A strong team is the only way to survive, for all of us.
