Just wondering if any has any ideas. The last school I worked for at, I had been at on and getting into the almost 3 years and left July 2018 quite amicably and moved on to a none teaching role. I was mainly teaching my own subject seemed to get along with the head of department fine, myself and the head exchanged a few friendly texts after I left, so when I sent a message to ask for permission to put them down for a reference, I thought it would be fine. However there was no response. The reason I did this was because I am considering applying for an examiner role to make some extra cash next year. So my first message was ignored it seems, then I sent an email to the headteachers PA asking if they would pass a message to the head. This again has been ignored. Has anyone been in this position? I was well known at the school, not a stranger to anyone there and it is slightly annoying that I am being treat this way. Does anyone have an suggestions?
