Please help! I have asked for a meeting with the deputy head as my situation is getting worse. I took a job on leadership scale and was told by email I would have a reduced timetable. However very soon after starting, people began to leave and we were asked to absorb their timetable. This has happened repeatedly until today when a new timetable has once again materialised taking me up to 6 periods a week over what was promised. I am also being asked to drop a GCSE class I see at least once a day and have worked so hard with as they need someone to teach an abandoned y11 class. For many reasons, this class had become the only part of my job I actually enjoyed. Instead, I am now going to have 4 shared classes and 2 GCSE groups. It was to avoid a split GCSE class that I didn't request to be part time upon my return from maternity leave. I would probably like to ask for this now but know already that my chances of it being accepted are slim as they will probably cite the management role as something which can't be reduced! The school does not use supply staff so we also do all cover internally. The promised management side of the role has not materialised either and I am line managed by someone with less experience than me! Is there anything I can do? Is it worth contacting my Union?
