I have been a lurker on here for a while but rarely posted but would value some advice with this. I wont go into too much detail but basically I work in a school I feel very unhappy in. I am an experienced, competent teacher (was highly regarded in previous schools) but made a move to this school a few years ago and have known since early days that my face does not fit. I have been on the receiving end of some very unprofessional comments, am ignored by significant key players in the toxic wee in crowd that dominate school activities, management are inexperienced and shy away from tackling the problems of which there are many. I have had a series of very inexperienced line managers - a revolving door kind of situation. Each one has not really got to grips with the job and then left and then replaced by a newer, even less experienced version. Wearing as I have to effectively start afresh each time and show them the roles. I'm unpromoted. Anyway, I was seriously ill last year - maybe stress related who knows, and had a lengthy absence. On return , I learn by email that my remit has been changed significantly. No prior consultation. Cant go into too much detail as it would be easy to identify me if any of my colleagues read this. I was really taken aback but did say I would give it a go. Not my area of expertise or anything I would have chosen to do. Honestly feels like they just want rid of me. I feel devalued, belittled, ignored , deskilled, unhappy and not even sure what my role now is. I have attempted to address this with SLT but am dismissed in either quite a hostile or patronising way. They aren't well regarded by most of the staff have to say. Being referred to by one of them as "an expensive resource" is maybe a clue to how I'm viewed. I have also enjoyed great relationships with my pupils, enjoyed working with them and in previous schoosl, had good relationships with my colleagues. My current school is different. In my absence, I had zero contact from any teaching colleagues. On my return, some people did not acknowledge my return to work at all. Having been critically ill, I feel I owe it to myself to find a better place to work. I had hoped things might improve but after only 2 days back, I know they wont.I feel trapped to be honest. Any words of wisdom, advice would be most welcome. Thank you!
