I know this is very trivial in the grand scheme of things but... I’ve been suffering with a horrible chesty cold for almost 2 weeks but continued to drag myself to school. I’ve been making myself worse by not resting and now it’s starting to affect my asthma. So I decided it was time I put myself first for once and have a day off to try and recover. I rang in sick! I was just wondering what reaction we as teachers are supposed to expect from Headteachers when ringing in sick? Are they allowed to say there’s no one to cover so nothing can be done? Are they able to try and make you feel guilty? Is there any guidance out there on this subject?
