After time off work (3 days tjen it was school holidays) recently I was given the all clear I went back to work. Told my supervisor what I had been off with ( kidney inf & numbness/loss of sensation down rt side - different docs said was caused by different things - lupus or a stroke) All was going fine then I gad to report I had been hit by a child deliberately tarveting my spina biffida site. It hurt but I managed it with painkillers, continued to go to work & lo & behold same child targets same place again but it left me with pain in my back & loss of sensation in my legs!
I have been off since Tues & Emailed the headteacher (who I had also reported the assaults to, obviously) to ask would she be dealing with the assaults.
She came back to me with a request to attend an interview conducted by her to discuss my absence record (4 in the last 12mts incuding now) & then she wants me to see occupational health -questioning wether I am suitable for the job (midday assistant) as working with children is physically & mentally demanding.
I disclosed both SLE & spina bifida when I took the job 4 1/2 years ago & saw occupational health then too (lupus had already caused a CVA by then).
I cant help but feel the head wants to dismiss me & avoid having to deal with assault.
