I have resigned from a school where bullying and harassment are absolutely imbedded. The school is run by fear and constant threats of disciplinaries. Every term there is an exodus of staff, it is a four form entry and this term alone 10 members of staff have resigned, six of whom are teachers. My quandary is that the union claim that telling governors will mean that the head will conjure up a misconduct claim against me which although won't stick will be very damaging to my health and prospects. The head has even gone so far as to lie on a reference she provided an employer about me having child protection disciplinary sanctions against me (later claiming she was tired when she wrote the reference and it was an admin error). Whilst I really want governors to know about all this, I wonder if there is a point me contacting them as the sheer number of staff leaving every term, many of whom resign before securing work, should be enough to set alarm bells ringing. Surely they should be themselves investigating what is going on. I hope this is coherent as I feel it is very jumbled in my head. Regards.
