In-depth article
Should I see notes from a meeting with my school's union reps? We relay advice from ASCL and ACAS on the difference between notes and minutes, and whether a headteacher who meets with union reps is entitled to see notes sent afterwards to staff. We also look at the right to ask to see personal data.
