Complainant Name:
Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sandbach Chronicle

Complaint:

Ms Lyn Hughes, Publicity and Marketing Manager of Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College, complained that an editorial in regard to the non-publication of its A Level results – which republished in full an earlier editorial about the newspaper’s deteriorating relationship with the school – was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a lengthy letter from the school outlining its position in regard to the matter, which had caused relations between the parties to worsen. The newspaper, for its part, published an unreserved apology to the school in addition to a further editorial about the issue, accepting that mistakes had been made and looking forward to a more amicable relationship with the school in the future.

Report: 76
