5. Consultation Questions

There is no obligation to respond to all questions and you are free to submit further comments as you wish. The questions are to help guide respondents.

Question 1

Do you agree with the scope and exemptions of the Regulations?

Question 2

Do the exemptions allow for appropriate flexibility in relation to the staffing of schools?

Question 3

Is the 24 month maximum limit for the duration of temporary appointments to the role of Head Teacher (where a person does not have the Standard for Headship) an appropriate limit and does it allow education authorities and grant aided schools sufficient flexibility ?

Question 4

Is the coming into force date of 1 August 2019 reasonable both for employers and aspirant Head Teachers?

Question 5

Are there any other comments you would like to add regarding this consultation?
