This week the head casually announced that my job will be getting advertised and I can apply if I really want (but basically I won't get it). This came as a complete shock and he just announced it in passing in the middle of the day and I was in such a state I couldn't teach the rest of my lessons (I just couldn't get my act together). Not even my HOD was aware of the situation, I had to tell them myself. I feel this situation has been very badly handled and will be seeking help from my union. At no point was a reason given as to why this was happening. This has left me in a position where I don't want to return to the school at all. Luckily there is only 1 week left to half term but when we return I have still got a whole term stuck in a school where I am not wanted and no longer feel likw a valued member of staff. I work my **** off, I am always the first in school (even before the head) and often one of the last to leave. I am finding this year very tough, but doesn't everyone? My head was acting like I am the only person that has found it difficult. How can I survive the rest of the year in this horrid situation? To make matters worse I have a very long commute so dragging myself out of bed at ridiculous o'clock is going to be torture. The atmosphere in my department is horrible since this has happened because no-one had any idea about it and they are all shocked too. All advice appreciated.
