Hi, Last term when I was signed off sick by the doctor my HT rang and asked for me to come in on the friday as there were staff shortages (illness). I said no, partly because I genuinely felt too ill to, and partly because I thought this was wrong to do). Yesterday my heavy cold of 3 weeks turned into something more sinus based and I felt sick and dizzy and realised that if I didn't get some rest I would just get worse and worse. So I was off yesterday but got a phone call from my HT at 3:30 saying that she had assumed she'd teach the next day (now today) but had crashed her car in the snow and was hurting all over - is there any chance I could come in? So I felt sorry for her (more fool me) and said I'd dose myself up and drag myself in. When I get in she's absolutely fine - if she's feeling sore she's not showing it at all -and doesn't even thank me for coming in. At break time people are asking if I'm ok cos I don't look right and then by the end of the morning I can't stop coughing, feel sick and am losing my voice even more. I've gone home now (which she was fine about) but really resent being guilt tripped into going in in the first place and I know she'll do it again rather than pay for a cover teacher to come in. Is it actually against the law for her to do this, and what (if anything) should I do? I'm leaving teaching when my contract ends in April but the school has an unspoken rule of just putting up with the HT doing awful stuff like this and not saying anything!
