I'm looking for advice. I'm 8 months pregnant. A few weeks ago the deputy said she didn't think sports day was a good idea for me. This week, the PE lead has come and said that I will have to do it so she has enough adults. I explained that if I were to be there, I would be late due to a hospital appointment. She sighed and said, fine, just come when you're done as though my pregnancy was some major inconvenience. I wasn't very happy with this for a few reasons. I wouldn't be bothered if sports day was at school. However, we do ours at local sports venue. It involves a 15 minute walk there and back and I have very sore hips at this stage. The job she has given me also means I will be standing for a few hours with nowhere other than the floor to sit. It is also quite far away from the toilets and I will not be able to go when I need it. I discussed all this with my Head teacher and said I was concerned about it. I asked if I could either be excused and cover a remaining class in school or if I could drive to sports day and do a different job there. The head said that because of my hospital appointment and not knowing when I might arrive, they shouldn't rely on me and it would be best that I didn't do sports day. (You'll note: not because of concerns for my health or wellbeing. That has been a theme this pregnancy). I assumed all was sorted. The final details have been sent out and I am still on the list in the same role. The only difference is that she has added "to attend after appointment" so it's definitely not an oversight. I'm really peed off. I haven't said anything yet as I'm too angry and it won't come across right. How do I deal with this? Am I actually being unreasonable? Can I phone in sick or will I get into trouble? Can I just point blank refuse to do it? What are my options? I am going to discuss it with my midwife but I know the outcome will be to be signed off which is ludicrous over a sports day. There have been 2 serious incidents with work (one where the loss of the baby was a very real risk but they still continued to expose me to that risk knowingly). I know that my midwife has had enough and this issue will be the final straw. I could speak to the deputy (who sometimes feels like the only supportive person on SLT) but I worry that it puts her in a difficult position. What do I do?
