Life has been a bit difficult lately and I just wanted to sound people out as to whether my concern is valid or whether life is getting on top of me!
I am on the governing body of a small village school and last term we took a momentous decision about the future of the school - we agonised, discussed and researched the decision for several months.
I have been waiting to hear from the chair as to when and how this decision might be conveyed to the parents and how we might take steps to reassure them and discuss the background to it.
Today I received the school weekly newsletter as normal and in it was an announcement about the decision from the HT, a statement that parents have had a letter tonight from the chair of governors about it, and also giving the date of a meeting with the parents to discuss this.
Nothing has been said to the other governors; we have had no opprtunity to discuss how the letter to parents might be worded; we have not been invited to indicate dates for a meeting with the parents that might suit us - indeed we have not even been invited to that meeting!
I have sent an email to the chair saying that I think these things should have been discussed with us all and also that we need to set up a proper communication system for the governing body so that everyone knows what is going on and has an opportunity to make their views known.
Am I just being crabby or does this seem out of order to anyone else?
