AIBU to ask how you moved into management/leadership (primary) ?

Did you take responsibility for a core subject? Become phase leader and then step up?

Basically I don't want to be a full time class teacher anymore. Sick of constant demands and extras that are asked for all the time. I've decided that the only way out is up - but how?

It depends where you live.

If you are in a glamourless edge of the London fringe, just apply for a Leadership post. They'll be glad of an applicant with a heartbeat.

If you are in a beautiful area of the West country, do everything you can to feather your CV- whole school responsibility where you can demonstrate impact is a must, and wangle your way onto any area initiatives you can. Delivering courses for the NQT cohorts, cross-school moderation groups etc.

I started as part of the English team, leaving spag. Then became English lead. Then assistant head teacher. SE of England.

Just be aware that the constant demands do not lessen in leadership. Quite the opposite!
