    Howard v (1) Brixington Infants School (2) Devon County Council EAT/560/98 (0 other reports)

In Howard v (1) Brixington Infants School (2) Devon County Council 1 18.12.98 EAT 560/98, the EAT holds that, where the governors of a school with a delegated budget had determined that a teacher employed by a local education authority solely to work at the school should cease to work there, and the teacher had appealed against that determination in time, the governors had to await the practical outcome of that appeal before notifying the local education authority of their determination. The "practical outcome" of the appeal would generally be its hearing and determination, but there might be cases where the appeal was effectively abandoned by the teacher.
