Steve Squires, NUT representative for Ryde High School, complained that an article had misleadingly suggested that staff at the school had passed a vote of no confidence against the headteacher during her suspension. The complainant explained that support staff had passed such a vote but teaching staff had not participated.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

The National Union of Teachers has asked us to clarify that it was support staff and not teachers who passed a vote of no confidence in Ryde High school headteacher Linda McGowan.

Report: 77
