About

We all know we need to tackle under-performance, but doing so is hard on you and those involved.

When you do raise the issues people can often react badly, go off-sick, go to their union or put in a grievance, leaving you wondering how best to proceed (and wishing you hadn’t raised the issue!).

Conflict is costing you at least £13k pa if you’re a 1-form entry school.

And you can add at least £10k pa for each additional form!

Let us help you manage this tricky landscape with more confidence and success and in the best interests for your team, children and you – because no-one comes to work to do a bad job.

Speakers

Emma Webster, Joint CEO & Employment Solicitor, YESS Law

YESS law believe 'life's too short to litigate' and Emma uses her wealth of experience to support many Educationalists navigate capability without going to court.

Leaders are expected to somehow just "know" the intricacies and pitfalls of complicated staff management and care issues despite having little or no training in these areas. These issues, if they are not dealt with effectively, become a drain on the head's time, the school's limited resources and have a negative impact on the school's ability to educate the children.

Emma's goal is to try and help you deal with those problems promptly so that you can go back to focusing on education.

Emma also sits as a part-time Employment Judge at London South Employment Tribunal and was recently a school governor.
