Hi I have a work colleague who has responsibility for a year group. They have been able to cope with the stress of this job for 8 years and have had only a few days off in the 10 years of being at the same school. Recently they were off with palpitations and were taken to hospital, they had numerous tests all came back negative for heart issues but work related stress was diagnosed and they were signed off for a week. After returning they are still not able to cope with the workload from that aspect of the job and it is making them ill. They are so annoyed that their body is reacting to this and giving them physical affects. They are now considering giving up their TLR as they still love teaching and being in the classroom. Can they ask to do this due to ill health? When they was originally off their sick note just mentioned palpitations not stress as they were worried about it being on their record. They are back at GP again this week (in their own time as still in work). I am insisting they makes school aware this time that it is stress related illness as SMT are continually giving them jobs to do that they have no time for a they are teaching 5 periods. Three people in the last few years have given up their pastoral TLRs due to stress. Any advice welcome.
