Members should rest assured that the NASUWT will robustly and vigorously defend any member who is threatened by their school management or governors, acting on the advice of the Secretary of State.
Remember that this is a National Action against the Secretary of State and is entirely justified and legally constituted. You have the legal right to take this action Try not to take action alone. Involve other members, inform your local Secretary or the Federation Secretary. Call for support from your Association, we will be happy to arrange to meet you and other members to discuss implementing the instructions. Follow the ASoSA document in giving your Head clear warning of what is wrong and how long he/she has to put it right. Engage in negotiation to resolve such a situation if you are trained and have confidence, otherwise call in reinforcements. Use the pre-printed ‘under duress’ forms available on line; then get onto your Local Secretary right away.
