    The governors appoint. Not the head.
  4. Do you mean "without" telling the governors?
    If recruitment decisions are delegated by the Governors to the head, then yes.
    There is no requirement to advertise posts other than Head and Deputy.
  5. i do mean without- thanks
    No they haven't been delegated
  6. My temp contract is being changed to permanent but apparantly it has to be advertised and I have to apply if I want it.
  7. For recruitment powers not to be delegated is quite unusual, as far as I understand it. But, if they have not, then the Head would appear to have erred.

    There is no legal requirement to advertise, an individual school's policy is another matter entirely.
