Suspended teacher returns to Hatfield school
A TEACHER suspended from a school pending an investigation into her professional conduct, has returned to her post.
Birchwood Primary School teacher Lindsey White was suspended in January, alongside headteacher Samantha Eckland.
As previously reported in the Welwyn Hatfield Times, Mrs Eckland resigned for personal reasons following the joint investigation by the school’s governing body and Hertfordshire County Council.
But Miss White has been allowed to return to her position with immediate effect.
A council spokeswoman said: “The matter has been dealt with in accordance with the school’s procedures and the member of staff in question has returned to her post as a class teacher.”
