Dear all, I am an NQT and managed to land myself a job in a positive and supportive school. I have a Year 7 tutor group, who I will hopefully tutor until they leave in Year 11. I am really happy there (apart from drowning in lesson planning!) and would really like to see my form all the way through the school, as I feel that this will be valuable experience. Career-wise, it may make sense to look for another post at the end of those 5 years.... however, due to the big 3-0 creeping nearer and nearer, my partner and I are planning on starting our family in the next few years. However, I have no desire to move school while having small children/babies at home. I would love to continue teaching (probably part time) post maternity leave... and it would be so much easier to stay at my current school. Therefore, these are my questions; Will it reflect badly on my CV if I remain at my first school for 8/9/10 years?! If I move to a new school as a part time teacher, will I find it difficult to establish myself with the pupils as I won't constantly be around? Is moving to a new school as manic as completing your NQT year (in terms of planning different lessons, establishing yourself etc etc.) I know that I am planning ahead here, but that's who I am! Any advice/experience will be gratefully received!
