Complainant Name:
Sir Alan Davies

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Willesden & Brent Times

Complaint:

Sir Alan Davies complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on an investigation into bonuses at a school of which he was head teacher contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

In an article in the Times published on 9 December, 2010 it stated Sir Alan Davies, former head teacher of Copland Community School in Cecil Avenue, Wembley, was paid a bonus of 403,000 in one year.

The Times would like to apologise for this error and to point out that Sir Alan did not receive a bonus of 403,000 in one year but was allegedly paid bonuses of 130,000 over a two year period in addition to his normal salary.
