Hi, I'm HOD at a large school but in a small dept, just me and 1 other teacher. I'm considering resigning as HOD - the usual things - constant demands, no time to plan and teach properly, feeling like I'm watching my back all the time etc. SLT have a track record of forcing out teachers they dislike. My subject is not valued by the school (within performing arts) I was employed in this role, so don't know if that has any implications for resignation from HOD. As HOD I am on the lowest tlr, so will lose out very little. I am on ups 3 however. I'm worried about implications of resigning this role, can they refuse to pay me ups3, will they try to get rid of me. I'm suffering from migraines almost constantly at the moment because I feel stressed, and it's mainly from watching my back! Every small mistake is picked up in, and this morning I received an email requesting a meeting during my (only) free next week to discuss PM targets which apparently aren't rigorous enough. . . Any advice would be welcome . . .
