Complainant Name:
Mrs Sandra Yardon-Pinder

Clauses Noted: 1, 2, 4, 12

Publication: Evening Standard


Ms Sandra Yardon-Pinder, Headteacher of Geoffrey Chaucer Technology College, complained through Equal Justice Solicitors that two articles which related to the school contained inaccuracies. The complainant also raised concerns under Clause 4 (Harassment) and Clause 12 (Discrimination).


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: We have been asked to confirm that the headteacher, Ms Sandra Yardon-Pinder, was not suspended from Geoffrey Chaucer Technology School as we reported in our article in March 2006. An Interim Executive Board was appointed at the school in November 2005 by the Southwark LEA. She was placed on garden leave on 10 February 2006. We are happy to clarify this matter.

Report: 73
