A bit of background pruned for anonymity. I've been HoD of English for several years at my current school. First years very successfully with excellent results. Recent years with totally new team, pretty poor results with inconsistency in teaching and application of policy (I asked for advice a few months ago about a colleague who was quietly not doing as asked - I was severely criticised in the Ofsted inspection we had shortly after I posted with regards to not ensuring consistency in my team). I have been working very hard on improving the teaching and learning in my department but didn't convince Ofsted of this. My Headteacher is relatively new in post (since the beginning of the academic year) and absolutely despises me. S/He blames me entirely for our poor Ofsted report, despite the fact that many other departments are criticised and there are factually incorrect statements in the report (I asked for these to be corrected or challenged before the report went live but nothing was changed). I'm ignored in meetings or else growled at. I have been left out of key decisions concerning my department and learn about them second or third hand from other people. I have tried to demonstrate progress by giving reports of what's happening - these were ignored and left unread. My previous excellent track record has been ignored, quite understandably given that my Head only really knows me from the last set of results, but I'm not being given any support or a chance to actually demonstrate what I am doing to improve things. Unfortunately, there are no jobs in my area at the moment that I could apply for but the situation with my Head is completely untenable. S/He obviously wants me out but I have nowhere to go and resigning without a job to go to is not an option for me as I am the primary breadwinner in my family. In the time between getting another job and now, how do I go about getting the Head to actually pay attention to the work I'm doing (and my department too) and support me?
