Naming individual teachers in an annual report to governors

    The leader of our team has produced an annual report to our governors. In the report 4 individual teachers were mentioned in a positive light but there was no mention at all of the excellent work performed by all other members. We all received a copy.

    I would have thought it unprofessional to mention an any names as it could be interpreted as divisive. Our leader is a wonderful professional that we all regard with the highest esteem so this comes as a real surprise

    Am I wrong to hold on to this belief or is it common practice ?

    Well I don't agree with you. No-one must be praised for anything in case it hurts the self-esteem of those not mentioned? Everyone must be a winner? Is your school stuck in a 1970s timewarp?

    Not sure why you've directed the question to governors though. If you are aggrieved by it you should make a grievance complaint about your team leader to the head.

    Thank you for your opinion.

    Aggrieved... timewarp ... making complaints against out leader ? No not at all. And yes I thoroughly agree that success should be acknowledged to those that deserve it but by using different methods.

    I thought that this forum would consist of individuals used to receiving recent reports which is why I posted here.

    We were just surprised at individuals being named and wondered if this is the norm ? Professional documents tend not mention individuals unless stating their position and or presence at meetings not on their performance and certainly in the past this has never been made public.
