This is how it goes. I started work in a lovely school 10 years ago as a mature entrant to the profession. So you can guess how old I am. It was like a family and I was very happy. 5 years in a new deputy head started. Things started changing. People left. Then a new assistant head started. People left. This one was an out an out bully. Anyway, from being an outstanding teacher, I became inadequate, however during OFSTED I was graded good with outstanding features. Five staff resigned, I thought I could hang on, but n I found myself under constant scrutiny. I can't even go into what they did to me. I felt bullied. Union wasn't much help. I resigned and my head promised to give me a good reference.(Union guy said this was not a compromise agreement). I was neither put on informal or formal capability at all , but I was managed out of ajob. Anyway I am now in a new school. It is a difficult school. I find myself floundering. I have tried asking for help but it wasn't forthcoming, so I stay back and work out things my self. I wasn't even given a proper network password until 3 weeks into the new job. Sometimes I don't even want to go in. I can't believe the same thing is happening and I am worried that I might be put on capability. I want to leave, but I need this job and also how will I get references from my previous school as things werent exactly brilliant there.
