Hi all Can anyone advise me? I did a year and a half long-term supply (part time) at a school, got on well there and left recently due to relocation. I am applying for new permanent positions and have signed up to a supply agency in my new village. The agency want a reference from this school before I can start supply. When I left my old supply school, the head said he would give me a reference, but he has so far not responded to reference requests from the agency and has not replied to an email and phone call from myself. I don't want to badger him, but it has been over two weeks and I desperately need to work to support my family. What do I do? The agency who employed me have already provided one reference and I am mindful that I will need this head to provide a reference for any permanent work I am offered. Help! I need to work!
