    All fingers and toes are crossed for you...

    And for Marshall...keep going and enjoy your new found freedom to be 'energised'. ('Energised' is a polite word for 'stroppy and argumentative' isn't it? ;))

    Not sure but I have an inkling that they are going to try to make me go in July rather than December. Union involved again. Will know more soon.

    Yes, make the union work for you Marshall. And don't let the School try and push you around, but ensure you leave on your own terms.

    I know you're happy to be going now, but I still think you've been treated shabbily.

    Agreed, Lara. If they want you to go earlier make sure you are financially close to where you would be in December.

    That is just shocking! I hope the union can sort it.

    I am afraid not; I wasn't successful.

    So I now give up. I won't be applying for any more posts. I can't take any more humiliation.

    So sorry and I can understand that feeling oh so well. :(

    So sorry, diggory. You deserved some good fortune. I agree that the longer it goes on the harder it is for you. The only positive is they haven’t discounted you completely or you wouldn’t get an interview.

    So sorry diggory. I totally understand why I you are giving up. Onwards and upwards. He obviously wasn't listening yesterday when I prayed for you!

    Perhaps he just has other plans in mind. What is that phrase 'His ways ae higher than our ways'. f that School turned out to be unsupportive digoryvenn may just have avoided a nasty experience. It was a small school and as you yourself know small schools come with their own problems. :(

    Don't see it as humiliation...how is it that?
    You are a great person and a great head, who just hasn't yet applied to the right school for them.

    It's their problem not yours. Time to move on - just like I am.xx

    Have you given any thought as to what that might be Marshall? I was just thinking it may help you focus on 'bad' days to think about future possibilities- even if you never carry out on the ideas.

    Thank you everyone for your kindness. The last two years have been so difficult.
    God must have other plans for me! I wonder when they will be revealed to me!

    It is a humiliation because they always appoint the 'first time head' candidate.

    The school on Friday had many problems including appalling behaviour and very poor results AND due an imminent visit from Ofsted so it will definitely be given RI. I feel sorry for the appointed candidate as they are very inexperienced with a lot of challenges ahead. They were an internal candidate working for the trust already.

    I will be moving at the weekend so I won't be posting so often as I don't know when I will have Internet access.
    I am at rock bottom now and can't see the way forward.

    Take care of yourself Marshall. I wish you all the strength to get through the difficult days and months ahead.

    Good luck and take care everyone!
