Hi everyone, I hope someone is able to offer some wise words/advice. I am based in Primary but I am sure it also applies to Secondary. Due to school roll numbers and employment rights etc. I was moved to another school in August, I was covering McCrone, one of the classes was extremely challenging. Anyway, long story short, one of the pupils accused me of hitting him. Luckily I had two fellow staff witnesses. This lead to an investigation and after staff and myself were interviewed, I found stress far too much and was signed off during the October week. Even though the investigation meetings were carried out the week after the October week (I was interview and did take EIS rep in). I did not hear until Friday 13th December that they were not taking it any further, but would like a further meeting. During the meeting and letter received, I was advised as per GTCS Standards and avoid any physical contact with pupils in the future. I have searched GTCS Standards and can't find any mention of this. Furthermore, how I can avoid this is Primary is beyond me. I also said I am not happy to return to the school because I believe returning to the school each day after something like this would continue to cause me anxiety and stress. The LA Officer was is not for moving me. The EIS rep suggested a referral to Occupation Health which was agreed. So tomorrow I have a telephone consultation, I take it after this, it is then the nurse who decides whether or not I see the Doctor? Finally, I am so confused around the sick pay, I believe I am entitled to 6 months full pay as I've worked for council for over 5 years, then 6 months half pay. Does anyone know if the half pay is topped up with SSP? SSP appears on my wage slip but then is deducted. I am hoping that eventually I am moved. However, am I allowed to apply for other authorities, are they allowed to ask me anything regarding this or should I mention it? Thanks in advance.
