Hi, Over the last three years at my current school I have had a somewhat strained relationship with my HoD. I believe by not agreeing with the HOD on a couple of things has made the HoD dislike me. I have felt on occasions that I've been spoken to in a patronising way and feel intimidated and not always comfortable speaking to her. My marking has been scrutinised heavily and I have taken on some feedback and adapted it to address issues, however the second in department has also started to scrutinise heavily. The HOD has been reporting on me to the Head without my knowledge but not informing me if she is concerned. This year after reluctantly telling my HOD about my pregnancy, things have gone downhill. My PM objectives were not approved, then my threshold application was rejected. confidentiality was breached on two occasions (one personal matter and one professional), my requests for support have been ignored by HoD/SLt/Head, my risk assessment not completed until a month before my maternity, no concern for my well-being and then when i'm due to go on maternity (last month) I have been told (without any indication through the year) that I have had an unsuccessful PM cycle. I disagree because I have evidence to show I have met my objectives. I'm confused about how I've been treated. All i know is that it's wrong and unfair.
