I have been offered a new job to start in September. I put my current head down as a reference as well as the deputy head. I was offered this job at the beginning of March and the school only received my reference from the HT yesterday and have called me in to discuss the reference. When I told my HT I was leaving they were really angry and have made my life difficult since but I don't know why as other staff have left and there has been no backlash. I have been at my school for 10 years(as a TA then teacher)and always put a lot into the job and never had any problems. Has anybody else been through this and been called in to discuss a reference? If the reference is bad is there anything I can do to prevent the offer being withdrawn? I don't know what my HT could have written but the way they have acted since I put in my notice has shown me another, malicious side which I never expected so can't begin to imagine what they have said.
