I was offered a job this evening in a local school I know quite well. Whole department empty, it will be run entirely on non specialist, day-to-day agency staff in September. They have advertised 3 times and had nobody apply. They would pay me quite a lot to work there but I can't say I feel tempted. Everybody else left after cuts to the budget left the department so short staffed the remaining staff did not feel they could cope, It was a department of 12 at one point, but had been slowly whittled down to 8, at which point all of the remaining 8 resigned.This used to be such a good school. It is destroyed. I feel very sorry for the students arriving in September.
