Possible victimisation for raising complaints

    I am a PGCE student who was kicked off my placement right after I made a complaint against my PCM for bullying me. The Head Teacher approved the withdrawal of my placement and then accused me falsely of forcefully restraining a child at the school. The Head Teacher never provided me with any of the details about the accusation and so now I am taking it up with the Board of Governors.

    My university never asked the school any questions and I suspect that they want to maintain their cozy partnership with the school so more PGCE students can be placed there. I told them I would escalate this until my name was cleared.

    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    As my dear old mum always used to say..."you'll get more with a spoonful of sugar than a spoonful of vinegar".
