School ethos not healthy

    Frustrated in new teaching job.
    Very experienced teacher but being made to feel like a robot and completely deskilled by the way this school runs things.
    The school sells itself as offering a huge range of subjects and opportunities for children plus they keep emphasising the so called excellent pupil behaviour.
    In reality, focus is on maths and literacy, with the latter being dictated to by school curriculum regime which has no differentiation or creativity . The specialist subjects keep being cancelled at the last minute. PE curriculum which is meant to be high quality taught by secondary teachers is repetitive.
    The attitude of my class is completely disrespectful . SLT never take my requests for follow up with behaviour re certain pupils further.
    The only response once was to reward one pupil ?
    I am being made to feel as if I being blamed for any behaviour incidents and told to enforce the school rules. It is by enforcing the school rules re behaviour code that the pupils get worse which makes me think that other teachers must not be enforcing the rules.
    SLT tell staff off for not responding to overload of diktats.
    Is anyone else experiencing a school culture which is unsupportive from SLT and treats teachers as robots not professionals?
    I am not used to this.
    It is so demoralising.
