Parents were tight-lipped about the resignation of a controversial headteacher as they picked up children from a Welwyn Garden City primary school this afternoon.
When asked to comment by the Welwyn Hatfield Times today, not one parent outside Springmead Primary School in Hilly Fields expressed any criticism of it or its ex-headteacher Jennifer Moles, who stepped down yesterday for unexplained personal reasons.
Last June, the entire board of governors resigned, and staff turnover has shot up since Miss Moles took over the school in September 2015.
But one mother picking up her children today said: “I think it is a good school, and so do my kids.
As far as the headteacher is concerned, I like her. People leave for personal reasons.”

A third mother said: “It is a good school. I don’t have any problems. I don’t want to get involved with anything negative.”
