    All I can think is *** :eek:
    Is this a troll?
    We are an Independent special school so not even sure we are closing as most of our kids are on ECHP , we have an emergency staff meeting tomorrow I am hoping it will be the HT reassuring everyone they will be paid regardless of what kind of contract they are on.

    It's Greentrees guys n' gals. It's a troll account.

    A moment ago he was claiming that his school wasn't shutting. Despite the closure being via a statutory instrument (i.e legally binding).

    Greentrees is a troll
    S/he is an imaginary headteacher of an imaginary school.
    Their last paragraph about freeing up funds is a clear ‘wind up’
    I find this offensive at such a difficult time for people whose livelihood is threatened, health possibly compromised and at a time when we should be supporting each other

    @GreenTrees123 . As we explain to children. The problem with lying is that it is difficult to keep your lies consistent
    Btw trolling and ‘flaming’ is against T&C s

    But this offensiveness exceeds your usual unpleasantness.

    How about shut up and go away or your own version if you prefer

    Muttley is a sniggering and rather sad attention seeker who appears desperate for some form of validation. On the plus side I do get some pleasure from being rude about a desperate wanna be HT

    Yes. A regular spoof poster who pretends to be head of a non-existent free school. He only does it to wind people up. Ignore him.

    What's a spoof poster

    Take your pick of the following:
    • One pretending to be something they’re not?
    • One who has such a limited life their only entertainment is to wind others up?
    • One who in RL can find no one to talk to / listen to them so needs to provoke ‘conversation’ by extreme or inflammatory remarks?
    • A pilL0ck?
    or in this case
    • A seriously nasty person
    • One so lacking a brain cell they think preying on people who are in danger of compromised earnings , health etc. is amusing

    I think we should just ignore green trees and not get side tracked by his/her posts.

    @GirlGremlin Yes, you will still be paid.

    if you are unwell, then you will be paid sick pay.

    Otherwise, you are technically still working, even if at home, and will be paid in exactly the same way as normal.
