What was the issue addressed?
I had to deal with a competency issue related to the headteacher. It was difficult to find a neutral voice outside the LA to advise me.
I used Governor Services Wales helpline and found it lifesaving. They offered confidential, discreet and unbiased advice. The officer was empowering to me.
What lessons were learnt?
The resolution was painful but had to take its course. The support given helped endure the pain.
