My boss rang me yesterday to tell me that school had passed their OFSTED inspection and discuss my return to work. I really love my job, for those of you who don't know I teach a special needs class of six children all aged between 4 and 7. They are a lovely bunch of kids and I have missed them being off. Anyway when I return to work I am going back to a completely different job. I understand why she has decided not to put me back in my class, as it may disrupt the children. But I am not going to have a job as such and she is creating a role for me. I will be with a different class every day, different set of children, different age group and not special needs. I am sure what she is doing is illegal as she is supposed to have my job available for me when I return. I did everything the correct way and she always knew when I would be returning. There is also the issue of money as I get an allowance for the special needs teaching, I am sure I need to go back o the same wage. Anyway she has made the idea of returning to work much more stressful than it was before and I am not happy at all. I am being told it is only for five week and one of my friends said I should take it as a complement that she thinks I can cope with that sort of job and my replacement wouldn't. Sorry girls, pointless rant but it helps me feel better!
