Every Single Teacher Has Quit At This School

Every Single Teacher Has Quit At This School

A school has lost its entire teaching staff, with every single teacher either having left or being set to leave at the end of this week.

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School, Bristol, has been hit with mass resignations after a number of teachers had to take time off due to stress, the Bristol Post reports.

Seven teachers will leave at the end of this term, which is the end of the week, bringing the total number of resignations up to 16 since the start of the year.

According to the paper, some of the teachers have spent over two decades at the school and are leaving because of the 'new leadership' at the school after a new executive head teacher, Louisa Wilson, took over in October last year.

The school, which was once classed as failing, was rated 'good' by Ofsted two years ago.

Stressed-out teachers told the Post they felt they had no choice but to leave because the workload was 'impossible' to manage.

One teacher, who didn't want to be named, told the paper: "All of the teachers are leaving. We've had enough. Many of them were signed off with stress, and the pressure was unreasonable.

"Leaving will cause them great emotional stress, because they share such a tight bond with the school, the children, the parents and the community."

Karla Wheeler, from the National Union of Teachers (NUT) said: "We were forced to intervene. Five of our members were off with stress, and they said it was down to the new executive head teacher.

"It's an impossible situation. Head teachers have a duty of care to their staff. We did a work survey, and it came back really negative. We're worried for the children."

A council spokesman for South Gloucestershire, where the school is based, told the Post: "Our Lady of Lourdes has experienced a lot of change over the past year, but we are pleased that thanks to a lot of hard work, the school and its pupils are in a strong position for the future."
