As you mention, this teacher had been employed at King Edward VI school in Stratford-upon-Avon, a school maintained by this authority. I wish to make it clear that the school and LEA do not take lightly their responsibilities regarding staffing matters and make every effort to ensure that their policies and procedures are followed properly. For the record, the school's head had formally taken up with the teacher his concerns about his performance well before the teacher chose to resign.
I am still seeking further clarification of the basis of the professional competence committee's decision and, in the absence of any firm information from the GTC, I believe there are serious questions raised about the process followed.
