A member of my team is going through competency prodedures. I think he is a good classroom teacher. How best should I support him and where should my loyalties lie? He has supported me in the past when i have had difficult colleagues in the dept. to contend with but he is no longer effective as he once was. We have a big English department and the deputy head says he wants him out. I think he needs support from the school at a difficult time in his personal life. We are not acrrying him.
