Complainant Name:
Ms Johanna Hall

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Tottenham & Wood Green Journal

Complaint:

Ms Johanna Hall complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on the outcome of an investigation into her conduct by the General Teaching Council was inaccurate, misleading and distorted.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction and apology in the newspaper:

An article of 26 May (Headteacher guilty over SATs ‘exam hints' at Wood Green School) reported that headteacher Ms Johanna Hall was sacked by her then employers, Haringey Council. In fact Ms Hall was not sacked but resigned from her position at the end of July 2007. We apologise for any distress caused.
