Hi, Just wondering if anyone has done what I am considering doing. I have spent the last 3 years as SLT (Head of KS and class teacher) It's a tough school for behaviour, very demanding workload, difficult parents and I have been unhappy for a while. Due to personal reasons OH and I are conserving relocating to be closer to family (we currently live 50 miles away) The new area is a lot tougher to get a job in. A job has come up in an outstanding school with wonderful behaviour and a good reputation. However...it is only a regular class teacher. Ideally I would like to go for assistant head/DH and my current Head is supportive and thinks I am ready for a DH. The problem is not many jobs come up in the new area. Do I hang fire and wait it out hoping something will come up as it is still quite early or try to secure any job in a decent school? I can't think about putting the house up for sale until at least one of us has a job. Does it look bad on your CV if you go from SLT to class teacher? Also to add this into the mix we have unsuccessfully been trying to start a family for some time and I am 37 (this is one of the reasons i want to be closer to family) I really don't know what to do. Anyone been in a similar situation?
