Advice needed. Our GB have received a complaint from a parent regarding the behaviour of one of our governors. The governor in question is a co-opted governor. It has been brought to our attention that the governor has been making offensive tweets about certain sections of society (not individuals but for example calling Conservative voters homophobic, racist, uncharitable, morally bankrupt, saying that anyone who voted Leave is gullible, thick, incomptible pillock etc etc - it's a grim read to be honest and you get the picture). This appears to have been going on for a long time and the parent has sent 30-35 screen shots as part of their complaint from a 2 week period in December 2019. The governor uses his real name on twitter and a real photo of himself but does not state where he works, however has been found by the parent because the governor also uses LinkedIn and states he is a governor at our school (which in itself a violation of the schools Social Media policy). The parent has highlighted that the governor is in violation of our Code of Conduct (we use the standard NGA one), the school's Social Media policy and the Nolan principles of public office and also questioned how the governor is abiding by several of the schools policies for example the British Values policy etc. Our CoG has taken the lead on this and spoken to the governor in question and concluded that these are the governors personal tweets and not representative of the school. The governor in question has now added a line to his twitter bio to state that "all comments are my own" and completely toned down his tweets - in fact since being spoken to he hasn't tweeted anything offensive, which indicates to me that he knows he was in the wrong. Anyway the CoG is planning on responding to say that his tweets are his personal views and as it is LinkedIn which states his association with our Primary school and not twitter, that he has done nothing wrong. Staff and parents are not yet aware of this complaint. Thoughts please?
