Hi all, I posted a while ago about being signed off with depression. The good news is I've started a phased return to school and everyone is being very kind, supportive and welcoming (seeing all the posts on here about awful treatment, I realise how lucky I am!). My year 11s have been taken off me entirely for stress reasons, and I am just supporting and observing for a couple of weeks to settle back in. However, I'm still thinking that something needs to change in my timetable for next year or I will still not be able to cope. My depression is medicated and recurs often enough that it falls under the Equalities Act as a disability. If certain adjustments could be made I would have a better chance of staying in work and staying safe. My question is, what adjustments would be reasonable?? Does anyone have experience with this? What I would like to do is teach KS3 and maybe 5, but in KS4, stick with supporting or doing intervention work so the enormous weight of the exam stress is relieved. I have major problems with self-blame, loss of confidence, and decision fatigue with my GCSE groups. If part of my timetable were devoted to support like this, it would also reduce my general responsibility and decision-making load, which is important for my wellbeing. Does that sound completely nuts? I'm afraid to ask my HoD because she is so kind and caring and I don't want to take advantage of that to ask for something ridiculous. I'm afraid to seem weak or unreasonable. Any thoughts??
