The move came 24 hours after a special report by Central Tonight into serious allegations about the running of Burton Joyce Primary School.
Headteacher Margaret Gretton has been suspended while Nottinghamshire County Council carries out its inquiries. The chair of governors also resigned at last night's meeting.
An acting headteacher has been brought in from another primary school.
