Hi, I am feeling quite stressed at the moment (aren't we all?). When I was absent last week, my new HoD went into my classroom and took some exercise books. HoD wasn't happy with them, so she took them straight to the Deputy Head. No I have had a telling off about books. I'm happy to receive any feedback and am happy to try and improve my marking, but surely the way to get the best out of your staff is to support rather than blame? Should I confront HoD and calmly say in future it might be helpful to see me about issues rather than going straight to SLT? It's not really motivating to go ahead and do some marking if you are essentially told you are rubbish at your job by SLT. Thanks!
