Hi all I started my first HOY role this year and am finding it enjoyable in parts but also challenging. I have a slight issue at the moment and was wondering if experienced HOYs could advise me. There's a member of my form tutors who has been a HOY before and is older than me. He had a tough time last year and signed off for a bit. Since he's come back I'm finding him quite resistant and being difficult for the sake of it. I don't think he likes someone much younger being his HOY. For example he wont respond to some emails where I've asked the tutors to all carry out a task on certain days (at request of SLT and I never bombard them with emails) He will email me things that he knows I wont have the answer to and when I see him he's coming across as passive aggressive. I sense that he's fed up with the school and not me personally but I don't want it to grow any further. What would the best course of action be?
