A former headteacher on Anglesey had been found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.

However, an allegation that Ann Hughes was excessive in inviting a police officer to reprimand pupils when they did not pose for a school photograph was not proven.

Ann Hughes was headteacher at Ysgol Goronwy Owen, a village primary school in Benllech.

Mrs Hughes faced eight allegations at a General Teaching Council for Wales hearing in Flintshire.
