You must not be ill!

    just had an email sent around all staff by a member of SLT that appears to be
    giving us a telling off for ever being ill, implying that it's a waste of
    money for anyone to be off for a training course and suggesting that
    people are taking days off without a valid reason. Ho hum. Obviously
    it's outrageous for anyone to dare be ill, even if we have had our
    working day increased and a substantial amount of extra work put on us
    as a result of new initiatives & policies brought in this term!
    Anyone else experienced anything like this?!

    Our SLT make noises like this every so often. It's what happens when people are actually ill that counts. Ours have been genuinely helpful, despite earlier noises they've made.
  3. Ignore it. If you're ill, you're ill. Nothing you can do about it. Better to be off for a couple of days than a) come in and struggle on and make yourself worse and b) make everyone else ill!

    It's probably aimed at a very small minority of staff, but they aren't brave enough to tackle them directly.

  5. This.
