Headteachers, I want some advice as to what you would do. Two members of staff who are SMT reported me to the headteacher for a negative comment about a recent literacy initiative. As far as Im concerned we were having an open, honest chat and I was talking freely about my view. I had my suspicions as to who it was and now I have left the school, one of these people has openly made it known it was her, knowing it would come back to me. This same person has made the comment, I will get to the top whatever it takes and I will bring down anyone I need to. She is basically a bully and other people are scared of her because she has the headteachers ear. Ok Im out of there but Im worried what else has been said to the headteachers as I dont want my reference scuppered and Im equally as worried for the people who had the courage to tell me what has been said, as they are worried that I will say something and implement them. As a headteacher are you suspicious of people who report others? It was a petty thing to report. I want to do my usual and walk away with dignity as it is all based on he said/she said but Im annoyed that bullies always seem to get away with it.
