I've been at my latest school since September. After a few months a steadily-growing group of students have been getting more and more more hostile towards me. Whenever they come up to my floor of the school they begin shouting and causing a scene. I've tried to ignore it but it just gets worse and worse and more are joining in. I pick off the occasional one by giving them detentions, I've pulled parents in; they've been put in isolation. Nothing seems to work. It's beginning to spill out onto the street as tonight a whole group were shouting an hollering (my classroom faces onto the street). It's got to the point where I can't wait to leave and it's a real effort not to march into the Head's office and say sod the contract I'm leaving now. I've never posted on here before - I just wanted to vent I guess. Other staff members tell me it'll get better in September but from where I stand they're just getting worse.
