Headteacher and his bonus 3

Over the last month or so I have been keeping track what happens next in the headteacher and his bonus story that the Education Guardian has been running. Here’s a neat twist

• Notebook has been waiting weeks for a call or an email from Sir Alan Davies, head of Copland Community College, north London, on the subject of why he had suspended three members of staff after they revealed his £80,000 bonus (on top of a £100,000 salary). But last week Sir Alan himself was suspended pending inquiries into the school’s financial management, along with the deputy head, Dr Richard Evans, and the bursar, Columbus Udokoro. The borough has often made headlines down the years, but in Brent at the moment it’s all suspension, suspension, suspension.
