Minds Matter All The Time


This email was sent by Winsome Duncan: Author & Public Speaker www.peachespublications.co.uk.  I discovered that Ryan Clement http://www.ryanclement.com/ spotted her on the internet struggling with her business and groomed her. She in turn spend her time on Social Media scouting out vulnerable people to scam. In due course, I will publish what became of my book that she was to publish. When I told her that I was barred from LEYF Nurseries www.leyf.org.uk, website and there were reviews to back up my Employment Tribunal case. She sent me the following via email. Winsome Duncan is an illiterate young woman masquarading as a professional. I will prove her to be a liar and thief as well. Then let me see what the Metropolitan Police Service http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report-fraud-about-youis going to do about colluding with her and the Officers involved misconduct?
 
Email from Winsome Duncan. Maybe Pre-school Learning Alliance https://www.preschoollearningalliance.org.uk. And Ofsted http://www.ofsted.gov.uk,   should take them into consideration as part of Minds Matter. The impact of working in the early years sector on practitioners’ mental health and wellbeing. Pre-School Learning Alliance June 2018. Considering that I filled out a survey online, does anyone think I am surprised about anything that occurred since? However the reviews on LEYF website is testament to the fact that the establishments and systems are prepared to cover up for their friends. Then when there are more cases of safeguarding then you hear the authroities passing the buck as was the case with the numerous inquiries into child abuse, over the years.  
I brought a copy of Alastair Campbell “All In The Mind” on Friday. I even have a conversation with him about buying books from Rio Ferdinand, et al and not having the time to read them. He ask that I read his book, because it will make me cry. No doubt it will…? I just want to say it’s time for actions instead of the rheteoric and bureaucratic red tape that is making us becoming voiceless vulnerable victims. Until Acas www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers, is prepared to act on Dr Maria Hudson recommendation after her research for the Policy Studies Institute, nothing will change. The same way how UNISON http://unison.org.uk, only act for some, but not for others. The actions of unions http://www.voicetheunion.org.uk, left me having no faith in those who are supposed to be supporting, advising and protecting us against discrimination.
Dear Mervelee,

I worked for this company for 2 1/2 years. I was grateful for them taking me on as a first job. But not for all the stress and health problems that came with it. I feel sorry for all the lady’s at my nursery who I left behind.
For a company who tells us to be brave, nurturing, inspiring and fun. How do you expect your staff to accomplish such things with all the over worked hours and piles of paper work that you so happily force upon them. We are there to nurture the children of the future but instead worry so much on how tidy the rooms are and how outstanding the learning journeys are. There is no time left in the day to nurture let alone have fun.
Maybe now the company has stop concentrating so much at making more money by opening more and more nurseries you would take a step back and see the amount of stress and over worked your older nurseries have become. Maybe think about staffing them too, to lift the weight of over ratio’s and 25 key children per person would just be a start.
I watched a handful of good and honest members of staff leave the nursery I worked at and finally came to the breaking point of where I ( at the age of 21) had to leave for my own health.

The staff turnover at marks gate has been awful causing so many other issues. Does nobody look at the effects of one person leaving before making the decision to move another 3? Now the deputy manager will also be leaving and she is the only person that reassured us during all of these changes that remained consistent and was always someone we could talk to. The children are unsettled and as a parent I feel awful leaving my child in the care of strangers I get my husband to pick up and drop off most days as I get too upset with all the chaos in the nursery.

I said Goodbye to LEYF couple of weeks ago but I feel that I left my mission unaccomplished and I am still struggling to overcome the LEYF addiction I have, however I do feel that by moving on I have done one of the best things for my overall well being. Leyf is an organisation which has high aspirations and to achieve these aspirations LEYF likes to push its staff as much as it can without sorting the issues or giving them enough support etc. Staff at Leyf get dead busy and no extra help or time is offered to them to manage the enhanced work load. As a deputy manager I had so much to do with out having any admin day or some time off the room. I was working as a deputy, a Senco, was in the ratio 5 days a week, had key children, doing extra hours, deputy’s extra work and 3 hours a day commuting and on top of all this putting up a bully chef. I was also put in the ratio when manager was absent which also put extended pressure on the staff when I had to leave room. No doubt Staff will find themselves unable to cope with added pressure. They are already under huge pressure as due to large number of agency staff and few apprentices they end up having 15 to 20 key children each. Eventually passionate staff who want to do a good job get stressed, frustrated and drained and finally bound to leave. Unpassionate staff also leave due to.separate reasons. In addition to fix the staff problems which I mentioned above another important thing LEYF must do is to upskill and empower their management team as they are directly responsible for staff well-being for example I had to put up a bully chef which affected my mental state to the extent that it nearly put me off coming to work every morning and myself (deputy manager) and the manager could not address this effectively and fairly I believe due to lack of confidence and skill or may be sometimes management’s habit or a will to ignore issues like this but who paid the price undoubtedly me. There are job competencies there for the staff which every one needs to meet but they are just a piece of paper. This ‘Chef’ does not meet any of these competencies, intimidates the staff however still comfortably working at LEYF under the nose of even Area manager who is (I hope so) well aware of his day to day actions.
 

My Insights

 
All I am going to add is this is only one of the reasons for my Fight4justice campaign. But instead of getting the justice that I was looking for from the Employment tribunal, I ended up with this online… go to https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2300047-2016. I am sure the public will not be surprised to hear that this is my second time facing direct and indirect DISCRIMINATION. I am part of Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research Paper: The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds for the Policy Studies Institute. Recommendations made to Acas. In this day and age when there is a Modern SLAVERY Act 2015, the ET reverted even further back than the SLAVERY ACT 1807. Is it any wonder I am suffering STRESS INCONTINENCE, so I am using the opportunity to tell the world the role that UNIONS play in keeping employees enslaved to the Modern Day SLAVERY Masters and Mistresses who have been given sanctions to destroy lives?

My Fight4justice Continues 11th September 2017.

My Fight4justice was created to show the world what LEYF Nurseries was doing to me from the time I returned from burying my MOTHER and transferred to BIB, HOC and New Cross in Southwark South London, http://www.southwark.gov.uk.  As anyone who might be following my campaigns to clear my name and exonerate myself, they need look no further than Dr Maria Hudson 2012 Research: The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds for the Policy Studies Institute to show that although I am declared MAD by the trolls and naysayers, I am an accomplished WRITER, who will be an Author with my first published BOOK soon. (Edit 3/6/2018: Winsome Duncan has put paid to that by stealing my money. Then calling the Police and Ambulance services to section me after I did not attend her 40th birthday party. She had no doubt planned to harm me and make it look like self harm). 
But despite the recommendations to Acas, I doubt very much has been done to implement the recommendations. Otherwise I would not have been left to experience another miscarriages of justice at the hands of the Employment Tribunal Service, http://www.justice.gov.uk/tribunals/employment/claims/responding. I have more than my fair share of stories to write about my experiences of facing discrimination since I arrived in the UK from 1992 to date. Believe me some of what happened to me are not good and do not make for pretty reading. (Edit 3/6/2018. This is even worse since I have the government departments, joining in and colluding to discriminate against me. This is proof that as far as I am concerned, my Windrush stories started from 2004. If in doubt, check http://www.icsouthlondon.co.uk for my appearance in the newspaper. There is definitely a vendetta against me to keep me a voiceless vulnerable).
 
And most concerning does not make anyone feel positive and reassured that they will get justice from reading about the atrocities in the Mother Country in which I was expecting the systems and establishments to adhere to the legislations, laws, codes of practices and conducts. But instead I have had to deal with workplaces discrimination that ruined my life and career prospects the second time around.
 
Each time the unions, UNISON and Voice: the union for education professionals are involved. The Local Educational Authorities London Borough of Southwark SEND Section and Local Safeguarding Board and Primary Schools. Solicitors Capsticks, Wimbledon, #JohnFenton http://www.personnelconsultancy.com, Bates Wells & Braithwraite London, Advising London and Barrister #SamanthaJones are all cut from the same cloth when it comes to dealing with the Vulnerable Employees.
 
I want the Public to take stock of my Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and Twitter to see if I have not been a CREDIBLE WITNESS throughout the time I joined the first Social Media platforms in February 2010. Then compare what I have been writing about my experiences from the time I transferred to BIB on the 23rd July 2014 to the Review of #JyotiBhardwaj below. Despite the ET Judgement posted online at https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2300047-2016, they have got it so wrong once again.

Perverting the Course of Justice and Getting Away

The Area Manager Jyoti is referring to is #HildaMiller who made my life a living hell even before I transferred to BIB https://www.facebook.com/public/Mervelee-Myers. But what hurts me the most is how the 3 Judges allowed themselves to be CONNED at the ET case from the 20th -21st December 2016 and then again on the 28th February – 3rd March 2017. This is a sad indication of how the vulnerable employees are victimised and scapegoated into becoming the #VULNERABLE_VOICELESS because of direct and indirect discrimination. Now can the 3 judges examine their conscience please?
