Headteacher is suspended

THE headteacher of a local primary school has been suspended.

Chris Powell, headteacher of Cuckney Church of England School, was suspended last week ‘following a number of allegations’, according to the local authority.

Mr Powell had previously been off work since September after accepting medical advice, according to Notts County Council.

“The headteacher at Cuckney Church of England Primary School has been suspended from his post following a number of allegations.”

“An investigation is under way, and as such, it would not be appropriate to make any further comment,” said a spokesman for the council this week.
