Teacher is reinstated

August 27, 2009

The deputy head of Simon Marks Jewish Primary in Stoke Newington has been reinstated following an investigation into allegations of misconduct.

Parents were told last month that Norma Blair had been suspended. Now governors’ chair Peter Kessler has confirmed that Mrs Blair will be back in her deputy’s role for the new academic term. “We are delighted that the children in Mrs Blair’s class will be once again receiving the top quality education that she provides,” he said.

Another Simon Marks teacher whose future has been in question, Anne Curley, has decided to stay on and will be teaching year four pupils.
