Hi Don't often post in this forum, but the thread caught my eye. I have had the same situation. Not only was the pupil high on skunk most of the time, he was dealing it. The school would do nothing and pointed out I couldn't prove he was. The he offered me drugs, in a lesson, and showed me a very substantial amount of skunk to prove it. I informed the lead SMT manager who called the police. He was arrested, but after intervention from the head got a caution and the drugs confiscated. He was high the next lesson and dealing again. The head called me in to a meeting. She dressed me down for reporting the offer of drugs. She castigated me for the fact the police were called. She formally warned me for bringing the school into disrepute (the press reported the incident after one of the kids called them and told them what had happened). I appealed the warning and won, but got no apology. SMT and Head now against me. When I left, I did so to do cover, where I got a good semi-permanent job that then led to references and a full-time job. I tried to get references from the school, they refused. The LEA intervened. No joy. Parents picketed the school to get rid of the head and SMT, and got rid of them. Things have been improved at that school since then. I pity whoever ended up with the witch of a head I had. Kick up a fuss, and that is what you potentially face. Stop complaining, be all smiles, apply for new jobs and leave whatever, do supply if necessary. But leave.
