I am looking for any advice on where we stand on this issue. We are a village school with 90 pupils. Our only management is the headteacher. She has been out of school at meetings on 12 occcasions since Christmas leaving us with no management. Today she was at a meeting all day despite 2 teachers, the supply teacher, the secretary and janitor all being absent. This meant there was only 2 fully qualified teachers in the school. Our p1/2 class was being taught by a student teacher and the nursery teacher had to cover p4/5. There was also a major behaviour incident. Is it right for us to be left without management so often? Apparantely if the ht didn't attend today's meeting we would miss out on funding so she had to be there.
