Posted on another forum but more traffic here... Just wondered what the etiquette was, as ours hasn't.She hasn't even told the DHT. Also - a close personal friend of hers is applying for the post. HT (going on recent history) and a close Governor friend (with no experience of teaching or working in schools) are the only ones involved in shortlisting (and she is also a close personal friend of the applicant). The close personal friend of our HT is also married to a member of SLT. It all seems a bit...wrong...to me.
