    Sorry, I meant that you would be giving the access to specific users not giving access to specific user folders (although this is possible too - just a pain in the arse for you to manage).

    Just make sure you draft out a policy that the member of staff must sign to accept responsibility, etc.

    I can't get anyone to sign anything. I can't even get an email to instruct. It feels like we can operate outside the law.

    The solution to getting signatures is simple... don't enable the required access until you hold [a copy of] the signed piece of paper.

    I was told in front of someone else, then told there's your authorisation - now do it. I have been told not to email because they want to conduct all communications verbally.

    Sounds like a disaster - where's the accountability... OFSTED will come down like a ton of bricks!

    Tell her bollocks mate, (in the politest possible way of course). Theres no way in hell she can force you to do something you think is wrong (and possibly against the data protection act?).

    She cannot sack you for not doing something under these circumstances. The next question is are you in a union? if so phone them. This is what they are for. I had this a while back at my old job when they wanted me to go diving into staff mailboxes with no signed AUP and no auth from the head teacher so i stuck to my guns and said no. Paid off in the end as i got the email i wanted to cover my own back.

    The very nature that she wont sign a piece of paper shows me that she doesnt think shes doing the right thing or doesnt even understand the situation, and wants a scapegoat if something does erupt.

    Bottom line is, dont do it without written auth, its not like your asking for the kingdoms riches, just a squiggle (which they freely sign whole budgets away on crap already...)

    Good luck mate and remember, phone your union!

    You could also seek advice from your local authority too ... if they say that you can't do things then you have someone higher than her backing you up.
