I have been signed off work today for two weeks with anxiety and work related stress. I called the school to let them know about this. 5 minutes later I received an unpleasant phone call from the headteacher. In the phone call the headteacher accused me of lying and saying I am causing problems for the school as they are having to get supply in. I'd had a tough week at work and received some negative feedback which has created this anxiety. The HT said I was making excuses and said it seems suspicious that after negative feedback I am off work with stress. I have been prescribed medication to prevent/manage the panic attacks I have been having. I have been left feeling very upset over the matter. I was hoping to return to work feeling less stressed after these 2 weeks, however I am worrying about the reception I will receive when I return. I am in the processing of contacting my union about the situation.
