Hi I've posted this on 'Pay and Conditions' but I've found this message board really supportive over the past months and didn't know if anyone here might have relevant experience too. I am employed on a full-time contract, but following a period of ill health where I have been unable to work, I want to drop my hours to part-time. My head teacher has advised me that this is not possible, nor is any reduction in workload / duties. In a perfect world, I would offer my resignation and look for other work, but I was signed off and missed the official resignation date, so I am compelled to continue in my current post until Christmas. I know I cannot manage full-time work and feel as though I am caught between being completely signed off or the head teacher taking capability proceedings against me for not fulfilling my full-time contract. I feel completely trapped - can anyone advise me? I will be chasing up a response from my union on Monday. Thanks for reading.
