Hi... I am desperately unhappy in my current job. My head of faculty is diabolical and issues spring up almost every day. The whole school is run like a business (it's part of an academy chain) and it just doesn't suit me at all. A job has come up in a LA school and I think I would be very happy there, but I am 8 weeks pregnant. I feel guilty about applying and not telling them that I am pregnant, and also that I would be taking a year 10 GCSE group only to effectively 'abandon' them for year 11. I thought I could stick it out in my current job and tried to think positively for the start of the year, but every day something happens that shows that SLT just want to take advantage of everyone and my morale is very low - and whats worse is that on certain occasions when something goes wrong due to bad management, I somehow end up getting the blame and looking bad. The tales I could tell you... anyway!! Just looking for some advice, really. If you were a HoD or headteacher and someone applying for a job was pregnant, would it annoy you? when would you want to be told? do you think it's bad form to apply for a job whilst 8 weeks pregnant?
