Help Wanted Asap

Hi there folks

need some advice for a colleague. She works for Staffordhire LEA and has just got a new post as deputy in another school (different LEA). She has been told by her head that she must work at her present school until Christmas ( I thought if you are a teacher then a half terms notice was enough? and for a head then a full term) She has just handed in her notice this term. Does anyone know what the precedures are on this?

thanks

If she handed in her notice after May 31st then she has to work until Christmas in her present school. This can be waived at the discretion of the HT and Governors, but very often they will not do this as they have not been given time to get a suitable replacement. Notice has to be given before set dates each term and the summer term date is May 31st. The Autumn date is end of October. If she leaves earlier she could be in breach of contract. Ususally schools appointing after May 31st advertise for a January start, or appoint tempory positions as there is a misguided idea that people who have not been given jobs before the deadline are the leftovers. Sorry :o

From my experience the governors and headteacher are normally keen to let the member of staff go after the date has passed due to not wanting to keep someone at the school if they are not wanting to be there.

 

It depends on what availability there is in the area and also budgetary implications. If the school are keen to take on an NQT they may be more willing to release the member of staff.

 

If they are keen to maintain an experienced member of staff then it would be much harder to find someone at short notice. Tricky one!
