    Ring the human rights and equalities commission and your union for advice.
    If OH have recommended adjustments and school refuse you could have a case at a tribunal if you were dismissed.
    Do you think it is true that you won't meet some standards if adjustments were made, as they may then have a case?

    If the school make adjustments such that you will no longer be doing a teaching job, then you might have a problem. Obviously they will refuse to make adjustments that mean you no longer do the job for which you are employed. They cannot really do otherwise.

    Talk to your union and try to reach a compromise, would be my advice.
