I think the problem is that some posts have suggested that there is no need 
for any procedure at all - I know perfectly well that an excess of procedure 
is stultifying, but some is required just in case someone falls under a bus.  
I was a governor too, and you're perfectly right about chairman/head 
co-operation.  But in our case these things were always reported on (and 
therefore minuted) at the next meeting, and we had a personnel subcommittee 
who did in fact interview caretakers :-)
