The head teacher of a failing school has been removed in mysterious circumstances following pressure from parents concerned about their children’s education.

It was announced today that Rev Julie Stanton was removed from her position as head teacher of St Giles Primary School, in Matlock, at short notice after parents handed in a petition to Ofsted this week calling for her to be replaced.

Tensions between parents and the school have been rising since a damning report by the education watchdog placed it in special measures in September last year.
