Having major work issues. Been at the same school for 3+ years and started as an NQT. I sailed through my NQT year and have had no issues in the 2 years since. Now in my 4th year, and am being threatened with incompetency. I fully admit I have struggled with leading a subject- didn't know how to go about it and did not feel comfortable telling much more experienced staff what I felt they should be doing, so have done almost nothing in 2yrs with that subject. However, head offered me a subject change at october 1/2 term to something much more interesting to me and which i have some experience with, so I happily accepted. However, at this time, she also questioned how long I stay after school each day, and then said I was not working my "designated hours", something neither I nor my colleagues had ever heard of. I was slightly bemused by this as I have kept the same schedule for the last 3 years- leaving at 4ish a few days a week, so it seemed strange that she only mentioned this recently. There is a reason for this that none of my coworkers know about- that I have OCD, and that's why I leave early ( have a very chaotic/dysfunctional home life). It's a big secret and it doesn't really affect my job, except that I need to leave early several days a week and cannot stay till all hours of the evening. But the problem is we have had a meeting and the head is threatening competency because I am not working enough hours and because I won't reveal my personal difficulties, which I dont want everybody to know about. My line manager has said incompetency is ridiculous, but I don't know what she will do next. I have been told that my teaching is excellent and not under scrutiny- Head herself observed everybody in October and gave me good with outstanding features. I guess my question is, can she start capability proceedings because I can;t stay late and in the past my subject leadership has been poor? I have achieved more with my new subject in just a few weeks than I did in the past 2 years, but now she needs to give me time to prove myself. At the moment she is continuously looking to catch me out over little things. And do I tell her about my personal difficulties? What if knowing that I have OCD makes it worse? I now have 2 weeks over xmas to worry about what willl happen. I enjoy my job and I don't want to lose it- it seems unfair that things can change so drastically. I am not incompetent and will not be forced down that route- I would resign before that. Like everybody, I worked too hard to fall down now. Any advice? I am not (yet) in a union.
