I was recently invited to join the board of governors as a parent governor, and because of a lack of volunteers, should have been elected unopposed. The other parent governors were informed, and a couple of them, as well as other people connected with them, approached me with congratulations and offered to chat about what was involved - so effectively the 'news was out'. At this point, two complaints were received about me from other parents - I don't know who, although I have suspicions and I'm not privy to what the complaints were. On the back of this, I was asked not to attend the meeting I should have been inducted at, and have now received a letter from the CoG saying that he isn't now going to invite me to join the Board of Governors. It all seems a bit cloak and dagger and I'm also not very happy because clearly it had been annouced that I was going to a governor, and now I'm not, I assume they will be sending out recruiting letters again, I can imagine there will speculation in the playground as to why I'm not. I want to make a formal complaint about it - formal because I have had a conversation with the CoG where he didn't tell me anything and at the moment it feels as though they are sweeping it under the carpet and hoping I will go away and I would really like to know what I'm supposed to have done. What's the best way to proceed with this - I asked the head for a copy of the school complalnts policy today and she's sent home 4 other complaint policies (the trust the school is part of, general guidance but no complaint form, an out of date model policy guidance for governors and the National Governors' Association complaints procedure!) and then suggested that I write a letter instead. I really would like to make sure that I do this correctly so there's no more room for the kind of prevaricating I've had to date, but it's proving quite hard to unpick what I need to do!
