Parents demand answers over headteacher’s absence at Winston Way Primary School
Hundreds of children will be returning to Winston Way Primary School after their Easter holidays still without a permanent headteacher.
Mark Mahoney, who led the school, in Winston Way, since it opened in 2007, has not been at work since the beginning of December.
No explanation has been given for his absence, leaving confused parents demanding answers.
Commenting on Facebook, Deepy Bharaj said: “Why not tell the parents what is happening?
“A headmaster goes missing and no one cares…no wonder Winston Way came last in the schools table.”
