Hi All, This is my first post. Our school at the current time is in huge transition. This has meant that a senior member of staff has taken over control of the day to day running of the school. They are very unprofessional. There are serious concerns over performance feedback from this member of staff in regards to performance management and observation feedback. People have been in tears after their meetings with this particular member of staff. Among major concerns are; unprofessional comments about members of staff said during PM reviews/feedback, overly negative and critical comments (such as giving too many targets and not commenting on any positive feedback) and swearing during given meetings. Staff are extremely anxious and not sure what to do. People are too afraid to stand up to this person. Unions have been contacted , but they say it needs to be sorted out internally. Staff are worried that this person WILL not listen and make their working lives hell if they dare say something. Everybody from new to experienced staff feel this is the most negative and unprofessional member of staff they have every come across. Not sure where we go next?
