Hi there, I've been teaching for twenty years, but... I've been put on an "informal support plan" and told there are three possible outcomes: pass it, with no further action required, continue on the support plan for a longer period, or be put on formal capability proceedings (gulp). I can't afford to go through formal capability proceedings. I have a family and a mortgage to worry about! So, I have started looking immediately for another job. My question is: how does this work with regards to a reference from the school... I'm worried that being on this "informal" support plan could jeopardise my reference from the headteacher... Any thoughts?
