I am a CoG less thena year in the role, but with 20 years gov experience. I have also 20 yrs teaching experience. The school at which I am CoG has been going, as so many have, through a redundacy procedure for support staff. Three members of the support staff had to be made redundant. The correct procedures were followed as to the consultation, identification, hearing and appeals, as far as I am aware. One of the members selected has sent me a letter raising a grievance because the school employed two additional members of teaching staff, one permanent and one temporary, during the process. However, this was discussed by the governors during the decision and budget setting procedure. The teaching staff complement was below that needed as supply staff had been used to fill vacancies caused by staff leaving. The support staff pool was identified as the number was high in relation to the teaching staff complement. In your opinion have we as governors, and has the school, acted wrongly? Is this person right to have a grievance? A s far as I am aware, the situation was discussed and made known all the way through the process. Thank you for your comments.
