Resignation (especially in the heat of the moment)

Typically, resignation is part of the everyday employment practice that schools leaders face, and most resignations will happen uneventfully. 

There will, however, be occasions when things don't run so smoothly, and you will need to apply a great deal of swift and professional judgement to less than straightforward situations. 

This guidance sets out those less than straightforward situations and provides support to guide you through these challenging circumstances.
