I was told last week I was deemed as not having passed my appraisal targets and therefore wouldn’t be recommended by my line manager for pay progression. This came as a shock out of nowhere. The following day, my line manager was isolating and completely ignored me until it came time to tell me that as I have sought union advice it has been passed on to a member of SLT. I feel as though I’ve been ambushed. I was due to move onto UPS this year (not the only one in the dept and another teacher is asking if they can be jumped up to UPS sooner than usual too) but I am also the team member that’s been at this school the least amount of time in the department. I’ve spent the whole weekend feeling massively anxious. I’ve been unable to sleep, have had an upset stomach in relation to stress and am dreading returning to work tomorrow. I’m looking for a new job but I honestly feel as if I can’t stick out the rest of the half term let alone untill Christmas. :-( Any advice welcomed.
