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."
