    Dismiss Notice

Breach of contract

  1. Is there any chance of talking to the head and asking for a (n early) release? (Whichever way they interpret it.) If not, well, unless you have another post to go to, you can always go on sick-leave and then they'll have to pay you AND cover you, too. In view of this I think any ht would rather release you...

    Lilypop is right: sick notes aren't just handed out at the drop of a hat. I really think you'd be better seeing out your notice, especially if you want a reference.

    hi, from what I can see you really want to know what the school will do to you if you don't go back.
    as other posters have said - technically they could sue you for their costs - as far as I am aware that has never happened.
    however, if you want to stay in teaching do be careful. any new employer has to ask your last school for a reference (due to safeguarding) and your current head could make it very difficult for you to get a new job. heads do also talk - teaching is a small world - so someone with a grudge could give you a real problem if they wanted to.
