i was appointed to a joint curriculum leader role in a new school in September but I have been doing the job by myself since. My line manager is the deputy head and he is also new in post. Our LM meetings are not minutes and he rarely guides me on anything. I have met every deadline and completed everything asked of me but the stress started to show in January. I told my line manager that I was crying all the time (I was crying when I told him). He told the head who told me I need to decide if 'I'm up to the job'. In February the department was put through a mock ofsted. Being new to the role I had not been put through ofsted at this level before. In 2 agendas I requested support and advice regarding this but I didn't get it. After going through the process I was called to the head so office with my line manager and I was told I had failed. The department was in a mess and it was all down to my weak leadership. The head then told me again to decide if I was 'up to the job'. I was so shocked I couldn't defend myself. I was shaken that the doctor signed me off straight away. I have visited OH and they have said that I need a SRA completed, a change in line manager, someone to help with the joint role and minutes taken at my meetings so that I have an action plan to follow. My union are involved but my head is saying that I can't take a rep with me to meet with him during my RTW meeting. He also says he will only consider some of the recommendations and insists I meet with him by myself. I know that if I had been line managed properly the department would have performed better. I also know that some of the shortcomings of the department come from the fact that the leadership is weak at the top. He can be aggressive and I am really scared about going into a meeting with him by myself because I think he is trying to scapegoat me and will bully me into resigning. I am also very concerned about the impact all of this might have on my career. Any thoughts?
