What is the best way to deal with these scenarios, to make it clear that I am not happy with them/offended by them, rather than just accepting? (1) HT tells you tales about other members of staff, eg complaints from parents. (2) The HT makes it clear that they're not impressed by another member of staff's reason for being absent that day. (3) The headteacher makes derogatory comments about the intelligence of the support staff. (4) In front of several people, HT informs you that they missed a course and tells you that you will not be popular with the course organisers. (5) On deciding classes for following year, HT asks you interview style question in front of a colleague, "Eg. What experience have you had with....?"
