Executive Summary

42 responses made to the following questions:

do you agree with the scope and exemptions of the regulations?

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

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?

is the coming into force date of 1 August 2019 reasonable both for the employers and aspirant head teachers?

There is a range of differing views on questions that will help shape the final regulations.
