Anglesey headteacher guilty of unacceptable conduct

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.

Two accusations - that she failed to maintain a co-operative working relationship between staff, and failed to ensure effective communication within the school - were judged to be proven against her by the panel.

Two other accusations - that she failed to properly investigate incidents of bullying, and failed to ensure with parents effectively - were judged to be partly proven.

Four further accusations were not proven, the panel ruled.
