    I'm a qualified secondary school English teacher but have been doing some supply work. After spending a few days at a EBD/SEN/SEMH primary school, I have been offered a job there. I voiced my concerns about not having "enough" experience (although I have worked at a few other behaviour schools through supply). They explained and showed me the lesson plans that are already done for you. I thought maybe it was a casual mention but they really have pursued it after seeing how well the children have responded to me.
    I made a list of pros and cons;
    Pros:
    The smaller class size (4-7 as opposed to 30)
    Less marking
    More planning
    The extra assistance is provided
    It's full time and gives me routine
    They seem keen to want me
    Friendly and close/knit staff

    Cons:
    Am I experienced enough
    Slightly less pay
    Abit of a distance to get to
    The physical and verbal abuse that comes with it. Due to me small frame it can be a bigger problem?

    Overall, I am considering it but was wondering if anyone has been in this position or have any advice or experience to go off
