Do I have to take all requests for leave to the governing body (or committee within that) for approval or should I be able to make these decisions at my discretion? I have had some decisions that I've taken to the Governors, have agreed and then several days later they changed their minds! Has put me in a very difficult position. They have now changed their minds back again but I just want to be clear whether or not I need to make these decisions with them or if I can inform them of the decision I take? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
