Today I gave all my teachers an envelope which told them what year group they would be teaching next year. All the teachers seemed to be OK with the decisions (or so it seems). But this Lunchtime two members of staff have come to see me and said they had agreed to swap year groups with each other. NO NO NO! I told them that if they felt strongly about the matter they should submit a letter of request to me and then, only then will I even consider the swap. The frustrating thing is if they had come to see me and ASKED if they could swap year groups then I may have said yes. But the fact they think they have the right to just change has made me angry and more likely to decline the request. Every member of staff had an interview with me to talk about preferred year groups and responsibilities they would like to have around the school. And to top it off the two year groups are years 3 and 4!!! Not even different key stages or year 6! Rant over. Now I suppose I had better go to the hall for break duty.
