Head resigns

Another head teacher has resigned. Oh yes, and she’s a 27 year old blonde who takes a nice photo and has no training or experience. One teacher commented: “She was not happy because she could not cope with the job, full stop. It was too much to learn, too quickly.” Well, who’d a thunk it?

What makes it worse is the refusal of those in charge to face the facts. A spokesman for Future Academies seems to think that resigning after five weeks in her first term was all part of the original plan: “Having successfully set up Pimlico Primary, Annaliese Briggs has decided to leave Future Academies to pursue other opportunities in primary education.” Yeah, right.
