Pelka headteacher suspended

Darren Clews, former headteacher of the school attended by murdered four-year-old Daniel Pelka, has been suspended pending further investigation.

Pelka's headteacher was suspended last week

The former headteacher of Daniel Pelka's school was suspended from his new job last week, ITV News' Sejal Karia reports.


I understand Mr Clews was suspended last week, while a council disciplinary process is underway. Neither he nor his union making a comment.


But Mr Clews has said in the past that he did all he could, but that Daniel's mum and stepdad were accomplished liars.


Various professionals, including some working at Daniel's school were criticised in a recent report after his death.

Mr Clews has since left Little Heath and has been suspended from his current school Grangehurst Primary and disciplinary proceedings are underway.

His mother Magdelena Luczak and her partner Mariusz Krezolek were both jailed for a minimum of 30 years.
