Been at my current school for many years. Appraisal, observations, relationships with staff, parent, governors and HT always good. Double RI, joined a MAT as pushed by DFE. Few months up the road, suddenly informal support, passed that, but suddenly moved up next rung of ladder towards capability. Head teacher had a personality change, MAT all over me, lots of evidence of bullying and victimisation. Suddenly settlement mentioned. But question or topic to discuss, is it normal for the MAT to just make negatives up out of thin air? There is no evidence of anything I've done or not done, because guess what I haven't done anything but my job. So latest is if I don't consider settlement they are considering conduct case based on me deliberately making assessments better than they were. There is no evidence of this because I am a professional with morals and need to be a role model. Cheating. Never! Scare tactics...are they normal for long standing, expensive top of scale person they just want to be rid of? Grievance, union back up and evidence of bullying etc but don't want to say too much here. I've read the settlement threads on here. This is like the silent killer of experienced teachers that no one outside of teaching knows about. It should be a national scandal.
