Has anyone gone down the union / complaint path about their HT and had it end positively? I'm at a bit of a crossroads, and really don't want to make things worse by starting something formal, but getting to the point where I can't kid myself it's just going to stop by itself. Without going into the details, it's bullying behaviour which has been going on for about 6 months. I worked at the same school for several years previously without issue. I have tried sitting down with her and clearing the air, and this seemed to improve things for a bit, but now they are worse than ever. Don't want to cause trouble or make things worse and would really like to stay at the school, but also don't know how much more I can take. So - does going down the formal route ever work out well?
