Parents: We’ll take legal action against school over ‘Bullygate’

THE former chairman of the Parent Teacher Association at Great Tey Primary School resigned just weeks after dinner lady Carol Hill was suspended for blowing the whistle on bullies.

Sarah Harris was one of a number of members of the association who stepped down, citing a lack of support from headteacher Debbie Crabb and some of her staff on a string of issues.

Mrs Hill was sacked following a disciplinary hearing by governors and Mrs Crabb last week. She was initially suspended in June after telling Chloe David’s parents, Scott and Claire, details of the bullying incident.

Mrs Harris, a mother-of-two, has spoken out following reports that one of the four boys involved in the incident is the son of a parent governor who was not involved in the disciplinary hearing. Full story.
