A special investigation by Central Tonight has uncovered serious allegations about a village school in Nottinghamshire.
It follows a number of complaints about the running of Burton Joyce Primary School from parents, teachers and governors.
Most of the concerns are about the school's plans to become an academy, but among the allegations are accusations of bullying of staff and intimidation of parents by the headteacher Margaret Gretton.
We've been told about alleged malicious behaviour towards individuals who've challenged the school.
The school has put in a bid to become an academy, but the Government has put the application on hold while the Nottinghamshire County Council carries out its own investigation.
Tomorrow the governing body is holding a special meeting to discuss the crisis.
Peter Bearne reports.
