All schools should have a performance management policy in place, which provide consistency and fairness and so staff members understand what is expected of them. The ACAS Code of Practice must also be followed when dismissing an employee, see:
Performance Management policies are not routinely incorporated into contracts of employment and they can be produced and implemented based on your specific needs and requirements.

We would recommend legal advice is taken before you take any formal steps. For an example performance management policy and procedure see:
