Haven't they adopted the London Living Wage, which is something like 8.30/hour?

Yes. [NB that is before tax]. But they took off the London Weighting at the same time as taking off any weekend enhancements! So we're still quite a lot worse off - especially as I worked every Saturday.
But I still wouldn't want to teach again!

I was mainly talking about child on child bullying. Not so much involving teachers. I'm sure you'll be fine.

Specialist colleges get more money for that specific area. So I'd you're a specialist science college you'll get extra money for science stuff but you're expected to engage with lots of science activities.

Thats why half of them are sports orientated :p

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

There are two types of academies. 1. 'failing' schools that are getting improved, 2. those schools which wish to have different funding. Not sure how the funding works but all the schools in my borough have become academies. In terms of the teaching, nothing has changed. I think there is just more freedom with finances.
