Head teacher vote of no confidence?

Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by mary cahill, Mar 13, 2011.

  1. Our headteacher has a long and detailed history of lying and bullying. Several members of staff over the years have taken out grievance procedures, some successfully and others falling at the last post due to a lack of written evidence. The lies and their consequences have raised their ugly heads again recently and a meeting has been called with the chair of governors once more. However, in the past, talking to the governors has only ever resulted with the chair 'having a quiet word' with the head and the head then picking people off to try and find out who has been snitching on her for lying-thus making the situation worse!
    Has anyone out there had a similar situation where they have successfully resolved things by either the 'Whistleblowing' policy or 'Vote of no confidence' route. Any help or advice would be gratefully received!!

  3. Hi

    Not sure if that is your real name - but are you aware that you have just given a load of details about your head - a head who could be on TES - in a public forum!
    Just an observation!
     
  4. No it's not my real name!! Thank you for the warning though! However, judging from the response so far, it's not a very interested public forum!

    You know you can have the post removed. If I were you I'd have it removed. Some people do not post but they lurk.

    And to be honest, it is a Sunday afternoon and you only posted 3 hours ago. Give people a chance!
     
  7. That's OK - just speaking from experience! Had a similar experience - but ours was not a good outcome! Hope you find some answers though! And a good result!
