It was always my understanding (and indeed I thought it was a management 101) that for regular, scheduled Departmental Meetings, an agenda would be provided at least a few days in advance, that a member of Senior Management (as a link person ) would be in attendance at most of these meetings and that someone would be assigned to take minutes at these Meetings which would then be distributed to all parties attending. I thought this was good professional practise. However it is now the opinion of my union rep that this does not have to be the case - that Meetings can be organised at any time and that these elements do not necessarily have to be in place. I was concerned about the intimidating nature of some Departmental meetings so I requested as part of 'reasonable adjustments' II have a disability as the result of bullying at a previous school) that these stipulations be adhered to and it was agreed that this would be the case. However it did not last and there has been a recent incident of harassment and bullying. What comeback can an ordinary teacher have if a Line Manger decides to organise a meeting at a moments notice - with no member of Senior management present and no one assigned to take minutes if the sole purpose of this meeting seems to be to 'have a go at ordinary Teaching staff?' This has major ramifications re: bullying, no?
