Thanks for your opinions everyone. It’s been really interesting. I think ‘getting over it and moving on’ is easier said than done. I am getting to a much better place at the moment and I think it’s probably a waste of time and energy to more than likely be disregarded. I am doing really well (not to be big headed) in my NQT year and managed an outstanding final grade for PGCE so I think it’s about coming to terms with the fact that I can’t do anything and in fact the best comeuppance for her is that I’m doing well, despite her best efforts. Even if she never gets to hear of it!
