    Moving on

    I'm leaving a school that I've been at for past 14 years but unusually all being done in the best possible taste as the saying goes. Just deleted all my own website stored passwords and my dropbox folder. It's like turning they lights off

    Good luck in your new venture.

    What will that be?

    Still in education?

    It feels awful on the way out, especially after being there for so long. And the first few days of the new post leave you wondering if you have done the right thing.

    I'm sure you are doing the right thing though! Hope the next thing goes well for you... enjoy!

    @SimpleSi has lots of schools, I think?
    Will you pick up another one to replace this one, Simon?

    @SimpleSi Its the schools loss. You have great enthusiasm and tour great with the kids and set a great example. When we have had the odd drink together over the years this just shows. All the best with whatever you are moving onto.

    I just had two schools that only had me for half a day each and they both wanted me to help out with new computing cuuric but there wasn't enough time for them both. But I've seen the school come through special measures and last Ofsted was good so I feel OK about leaving and a quality firm is taking over so they are not being left in the lurch. The new team might even upgrade the computers from win98

    Just doing more of the teaching than I used to as having been teaching Scratch as an extra activity - now its hit mainstream curriculum then my schools are using the resources they have to hand - e.g. me

    So basically do 2Hrs a day teaching Scratch - the rest tech moving around 5 schools instead of 6

    Hopefully using Arduinos and RaspberryPi with Y5 and 6
