Use the yellow highlighted text to help you adapt it to suit the role you're appointing someone to, and to meet your school's needs.

We worked with one of our associate education experts, Helen Cooper, to create this template letter. We also referred to guidance from Acas.

Be clear on what this statement should include and when you need to send it by in our other article.
