Got a promoted position. Hate it. Hate it. HATE it.

It is teaching if that makes a difference!

I am longing for my old place shock

Of course not, go for it. You can always look. At worst you will find the right job, go for an interview and get an offer. Life is too short.
Sometimes it's also good to see what else is around, it makes you appreciate your current role a lot more.

Have you moved schools?

It takes at least a year to get to know the culture, the kids, and what the new position entails.

Thanks! I do know that but yes - it feels like more.

What don't you like about it?

I hate the way the children are treated and consequently how they behave, the school itself is a state - it isn't a nice place to work

I think you might have joined my school. Welcome! grin
Seriously, start looking and get out!

I would leave.
We spend too much of our waking day at work to be miserable there.

Of course. I've been in my job 3 months. Bloody hate it. Can't wait to get away.

I felt like that in my current job after 5 weeks-I dissolved in tears whenever anyone asked how it was going. I started looking for other jobs as well but things sort of improved once I'd been there over half a term. I've been there for years now and love it much more than my previous school!

Yes, look-but do give it a chance smile
