Oh no. What's happened?

Scorbus Wed 19-Oct-16 19:50:18

Hope you're ok flowers

I hear you. Today has been shit for me too. Not totally completely shit - still like the kids - just the hoops to jump through seem to get harder, higher and more out of reach. Hope you are ok.

Not enough time to do everything they are asking. Kids are vile creatures. Dont think.i.can make it to Xmas.

Apologies for not having worked out how to change to a better name but I was in tears in the toilets today if that makes you feel better.

I felt just like you last week, I was a sobbing mess in the staff room.
This week seems much better, for now. I'm glad I held off with the resignation. See what you feel like in the half term? The 31st is a Monday, you can still hand in your notice after the break.
Any support from higher up in sight?

monkeysox Wed 19-Oct-16 21:34:39

No. I think they'll end up with no staff at this rate.

If you are my colleague and we had the same telling off today: fuck them, they're a bunch of fuckwits who don't know what they're doing 99% of the time!

Kids are tetchy and tired and so are we.
Horrid time of year in teaching too- work piling up, meetings and deadlines aplenty.
Hang in there flowers

Telling off about what 70?
Primary or secondary?

70ontheinside Wed 19-Oct-16 21:39:47

I don't want to out myself, it was some stupid, nitpicky, completely irrelevant but very (!!) important nonsense.

user1471470141 Wed 19-Oct-16 21:45:59

I just feel I can't do right for doing wrong at the moment. Useless management, no discipline, no resources nor support and yet they expect miracles. i can't get my head above water because I am so exhausted by the time I get home I can't think straight.

Let me guess, you hadn't spotted a spelling mistake on the book trawl, during a learning walk the objectives were not visible on the white board because the lesson was underway and you had changed the slide, you fucked up on 'Show my homework' and a parent complained. During a learning walk you lesson was slow to start because the students were late from their PE lesson. Any other suggestions?

Elephant is do you work in my school.

Now we have the "pupil voice" to contend with. The staff were shown a video of the kids essentially slagging us off. Then the head wondered why morale was so low. hmm

70ontheinside Wed 19-Oct-16 21:54:35

I think we're all in the same school!

elephantoverthehill Wed 19-Oct-16 21:58:51

We had a student voice sample taken today, I am sure the students reactions will really be positive hmm

robindeer Wed 19-Oct-16 22:00:35

We may as well all be in the same school. As long as we're all teaching in England, things are going to be shit for us. Until we get a new government I can't see anything changing.

Makemineacabsauv Wed 19-Oct-16 22:06:35

It's not just in England ... We are the same in Scotland, staff in tears, staff off sick with stress and management doing anything apart from actually managing anything - more interested in getting everyone into cliques and breaking up a team. The endless demands and the amount of time taken up with sheet and utter nonsense is exhausting and demoralising.

SheStoodInTheStorm Wed 19-Oct-16 22:12:46

Oh wow. Not alone!

I spent my whole lunch break crying in the cupboard today. I am wondering how much longer until I break.

user1471470141 Wed 19-Oct-16 22:14:00

I'm in Scotland too and the majority of people I work with are at breaking point because they are trying so hard to keep on top of everything but have realised the management haven't a clue about what they are asking of the staff. I think I would need a year without a class to even begin to feel like I was in control and on top of all the new developments.

70ontheinside Wed 19-Oct-16 22:17:17

I have been in a new school since September and I love the positive feedback and supportive atmosphere in the department <insert hysterical laughter>

leccybill Wed 19-Oct-16 22:20:34

Ofsted last week and full subject review this week. Kill me now!
