Administraor in England
on 27 August 2019
Great people, poor organisation
I worked in a school office and it was the most stressful job I’ve ever had. The pressure placed on office staff is unbelievable. At one point I was the only person working full time and was expected to carry out the role of three full timers seamlessly with no support from our operations manager. It opened my eyes to the pressures the teachers are under too. No glue sticks but the trust owner flies into schools on a helicopter. We raise money for the school but it gets pooled to share with other no to so hard up school. Very odd.

Absolutely destroyed me
I began work at the school as an NQT, and was initially told I was doing well. To begin with I enjoyed my job, though the hours were long and the workload heavy - I felt that I was making a difference and that SLT cared about myself and my colleagues. I was wrong. During my 3rd NQT term, there was a huge staffing change. My mentor left, as did the head teacher. I had made the mistake of disclosing to my previous mentor that I was struggling with my mental health, and things suddenly changed. I was told that I was inadequate, and probably wouldn't pass my nqt year unless I had several extensions. No attempt was made to support me through this process, and SLT made it clear they did not care about my wellbeing. I ended up leaving because the stress and pressure caused my mental health to deteriorate so badly I became very I'll. In my time at this school I experienced relentless bullying from SLT, a leadership team that were focused only on numbers and league tables instead of their childrens wellbeing, an atmosphere rife with cliques, my colleagues scribbling sentences in their childrens books with their non dominant hands and faking work in order to tick boxes, and little to no regard for staff wellbeing. I saw colleagues pressured into taking extra responsibilities with no compensation for their additional work, teachers and support staff sobbing in the staff room from the abuse and lack of support, teachers being verbally abused by the deputy head in front of their classes, colleagues being given deliberately bad references to prevent them from moving on. My own reference was awful and prevented me from getting another job for quite some time. Please, please do not work for this academy trust. I promise you it is not worth it.
Support Staff in Northampton

Simply Awful
No support from senior management. No training. No appraisals therefore no pay increases. Back stabbing, promise the earth - deliver nothing. Unprofessional to say the least
Lifeguard in Loughborough, Leicestershire
on 23 March 2020
Lifeguarding
I was a lifeguard here and the management was terrible it was always your fault if you did something wrong even if you weren't taught to do so. They always would pretend that the care be really the don't
Middle leader in Lincolnshire
on 9 February 2020
Avoid working for DRET
If your face fits and you always say yes and never have an opinion of your own, this is the place for you. Some headteachers are controlling. Tantamount to bullies. PPA time not protected. Leadership time for middle leaders non existent as always used for cover. School atmosphere toxic.
