The information requested is not held centrally. Responsibility for capability procedures in schools is primarily a matter for local employers.

The regulations on teacher appraisal are mandatory for maintained schools and local authorities. They give schools and local authorities the freedom to design appraisal policies that suit their own individual circumstances. The regulations can be found here:
