I just watched the programme School tonight and it made me feel so sad at the end when I watched staff who tried their best but felt they had to leave. It makes me feel so frustrated to see hard working and passionate school staff suffering under all these unnecessary pressures. I can relate to most of it as I'm going through a tough time recovering from work related stress so I can sympathise with the staff at [This comment/section has been removed for breaching our Community Guidelines/Terms and conditions] It seems so many teachers are leaving the profession which is something I am considering also - even though I love teaching I just don't think I can cope with all the stress again. Sorry, but just felt I had to say something as this programme highlighted many of the workplace dilemmas we see on these forums. I have children of my own, I just hope by the time they start Secondary school things will be more settled in the education system and we can attract the subject specialists we require to teach our children. I can see why graduates don't enter the profession and if they watched the programme tonight I doubt any of them will apply! I apprectiate that there are fantatsic schools out there with staff who are receiving support and enjoy their job - my previous school before relocating was fantastic. However, most of the time all I hear is it is getting worse and teachers are experiencing burnout, which often results in anxiety and/or depression due to all the pressures highlighted tonight. I do hope things change to ensure all pupils have a chance of achieving their true potential and to attract all those good teachers back. I attended a union workshop recently where there were many teachers who are working in other professions waiting for teaching to improve in hope to return one day - one of them has been waiting 6 years!
