Can Staff question Governors decision about appointment /non appontment of Head

Discussion in 'Governors' started by Rain Man, Mar 19, 2011.

  1. Is it the LEA advisor(s) as well, then? I'm new to this.
    The original question,as quoted below, still applies, or are the Staffs' hands tied?
    If LEA advisors assess some candidates for Head as excellent and Staff
    agree but Governors still do not appoint, can anything be done? i.e.
    vote of no confidence.

    In my experience LA advisers only offer advice as to whether HT candidates are unsuitable. Once candidates have been deemed suitable LA advisers usually leave it to the Governing Body to decide which one they want for their school.

    Unless the candidate is an internal candidate I don't understand how the staff can assess whether they are 'excellent' or not. There is nothing to stop the staff organising a motion of 'no confidence' but it has no formal significance and might be viewed by some as being of questionable professionalism,

    As the previous poster says, it's a matter for the GB alone.
