Ms Lisa Jepson, Deputy Head of Park View Academy, complained that two articles about the suspension and subsequent reinstatement of teacher Kwabena Peat had stated inaccurately that he had written letters to the organisers of a training day on homophobic bullying, when in fact he had addressed gay colleagues, only one of whom was an organiser.


The complaint was resolved by the publication of the following clarification:

Park View Academy

On April 26 and August 2 we reported on the disciplining of Kwabena Peat, a Christian teacher at Park View Academy, north London, accused of harassing colleagues with angry letters after walking out of a training day on homophobic bullying. We have been asked to make clear that the letters were addressed to gay colleagues and not to the organisers of the event as stated.
