Warrington Guardian: Head teacher suspended at Orford primary school Head teacher suspended at Orford primary school

THE head teacher at St Andrew’s Primary School has been suspended, the Warrington Guardian can reveal.

Keith Cahillane has been removed from the school on Mardale Avenue, Orford, while an investigation by Warrington Borough Council takes place.

It is not yet clear on what grounds he has been suspended.

A spokesman for Warrington Borough Council said: “We can confirm the head of St Andrew’s Primary School has not been dismissed.

"The head has been suspended without prejudice pending an investigation and it would be inappropriate for us to comment any further.”

“The head is currently out of school and interim arrangements have been put in place to ensure the school operates as usual and disruption to pupils is kept to a minimum."

As a grandparent of a pupil of St Andrews primary school I am in disbelief of the news of Mr Cahillane being suspended I have on a number of occasions attended St Andrews school to join in many celebrations and to pick up my grandchild. It is obvious of the massive well needed improvements to the school and the children,I have on a number of times overheard parents complain about the the changes Mr Cahilllane has made and I honestly do not understand how some parents cannot see that the changes are for the better,It is obvious that these changes have had a massive positive impact on the children and are only done for the children's best interest,I can honestly say that the children now walk with their heads held high they have the upmost respect for Mr Cahillane and he for them. They are very well behaved, well mannered and above all happy and i believe this is down to the passion and commitment of Mr Cahillane and fell that as parents and grandparents we should support Mr Cahillane in what I can only imagine to be terrible time for him and hopefully he will return as soon as possible to continue to take the school from strength to strength.

Don't know the school and don't know the Head but nowhere in the article does it say he has been suspended for his leadership skills, there could be other reasons for his suspension! I would await the outcome of the investigation before jumping to conclusions and presuming that this has something to do with his professional life.

My comment wasn't aimed at you it was a general comment pointing out that his suspension may not be anything to do with his professional life. I just hope for the school that this is a swift investigation so the school can move on and put this behind them.

I believe its called a joke, a remark to make others smile or even laugh. you should try it.

And as i have no knowledge of this head or school the WG can rest easy without fear of having to remove my comments like they did about the bullying head at another local primary school near the barracks...

The concerned grandparent in all probability and others included were unable to share your "Joke", as you call it. You must really gen up on the structure of humorous comments and develope your delivery before you will be considered comedic in any way..
