I am a deputy headteacher in a london school. and I have come to realize that the new headteacher is trying to undermine my position. There have been a number of issues, however the most worrying that came to light recently is the following.
An email was sent to the head teacher complaining about an incident that had nothing to do with me and as such I wasn't referred to in that original e mail. However when the HT responded to the author of the complaint she inadvertently had the altered e mail below.
I was alerted by the author when she copied me in to her response to the HT; saying that she was now very concerned as her original email had been tampered with, and additional information added that she did not write. I was then able to see that I my name had been added as part of the altered email and it implied that I had ignored an issue that had been raised. This was clearly added maliciously to discredit me as it was forwarded on to a member of the school's Governing Body.
If I need to negotiate a settlement, or as a last resort claim constructive dismissal would it affect my pension?
