This week we had a student caught plagerising work, with several students witnessing it, I believe it was a misunderstanding but from several members of (including senior) staff it was clear: This student needs an after school detention and a phone call home. This all sounds simple apart from the fact that this student has previously accussed me of not helping him in lessons and being mean to him. It has been to the point where we've had meetings with parents in school. However I made the phone call and set the detention as instructed. As I explained the situation to the parent he thanked me for the phone call but then said that 'Someone is not doing their job right, we will be in touch with -Name- because this is now beyond a joke'. That name is effectively my boss and it was very clear from his tone of voice that person 'not doing their job right' was me. I feel heartbroken in all honesty. I have put my tears and blood into helping these students and I don't know what this student is saying at home but now I feel like this going to be taken further and that it is going to be me that faces the firing line. What makes it worse is that this is not the first time this has happened with this student and the fact the parent would not engage with me as to what he was unhappy about. I believe I help all of my students equally, as it's a qualification I explain the work they need to do, provide examples and help points, I circulate and then if anyone wants me to check their work I do so in class and take it in for regular marking. What I refuse to do is write the students work - it doesn't help them, it doesn't help me. All I want to do right now is cry and quit and I feel pathetic for even thinking that.
