In January our school received a 188 notice following which seven of us have been made redundant. For a primary school of approximately 300 children this is quite a large proportion. Although correct procedure was seen to have taken place regarding redesigning the new staff structure, there has been no support for any of his who were unsuccessful . Our head teacher is rarely to be seen and the governors, one of whom is specifically for staff and pupil welfare, are nowhere to be seen. We were all emailed a generic redeployment form but it turns that this is no longer valid. Is this lack of support normal? The lack of support has sadly served to make a tough situation even tougher.
