Just need to offload.... I have a really difficult class this year. Lots of individual needs that haven’t always been managed well in the past. One girl on the autistic spectrum is very low ability but also very disruptive. The parents have been in to see the SENCO today and had a meeting highlighting all of my failures. Subsequently senco relayed these to me - it took him an hour! I feel that nearly all of their comments are unfair. The girl is going home and telling the parents she’s had an awful day with me and I’ve been mean and give her a hard time. In my eyes, I’ve worked with her in lots of lessons, she’s joked and told me about things at home etc. I was absolutely floored when the senco told me their complaints. The senco would now like to hold a meeting with head, me, child and parents so that the child can tell me how they feel. I suppose I feel like everyone has taken her word and anything I say isn’t true. I have been told I have to work with her to celebrate her successes by keeping a book and taking photos and writing notes etc. With 30 kids who are already behind, I am struggling with how I’ll fit this in on top of everything else. I feel mean in saying that I feel totally unsupported by my senco and head. I know we are there for our children and I have been trying so hard but I can’t see my way out of feeling upset. My head has emailed about having ideas for a positive move forward but I feel it’s then as if it’s fine for them to say anything they like about me and I’m going to have to accept it whilst also doing whatever to please them. I’ve spent the night in tears and wondering how much more I can take in the job.
