Investigation continues at Ardwyn School

A Welshpool headteacher remains suspended, more than six months after an investigation was opened into allegations against her.
Eirios Hall was asked to leave her post at Ardwyn Nursery and Infants School, in Welshpool, last February pending the outcome of an undisclosed investigation by her employers – Powys County Council.
An interim headteacher has taken charge for the new term, which started last Thursday, and will remain in charge until the investigation has been completed.
A statement from Powys County Council to mywelshpool read: “The Headteacher of Ardwyn Nursery & Infants School is currently suspended from her duties pending a conclusion to investigations. Suspension is a neutral act which is taken in order to enable an investigation to take place.
“Mrs Yvonne Naylor, headteacher of Oldford Infants School will become acting headteacher of Ardwyn on a temporary basis while the investigation is ongoing. Mrs Naylor will remain Oldford's Headteacher during this time.”
Parents were initially told of the investigation by letter which failed to say why Mrs Hall had been suspended. Powys County Council has said that no further information would be made public by them as “relevant procedures are being followed making it inappropriate to comment further”.
Under Mrs Hall’s leadership, the school has won a number of awards for the healthy environment it provides for its pupils. Only last July, Powys County Council presented the school with a healthy school certificate for including health education in the curriculum.
