the headteacher at one of Doncaster’s highest achieving schools has been suspended.

Dr Sai Patel of Hayfield School, Hurst Lane, Auckley was suspended after the Governing Body stepped in.

The Chair of Governors at The Hayfield School, Graham Hartshorn, said: “The Governing Body has decided it is appropriate for the School’s Headteacher to have a period of absence whilst we look further into recent issues. Supporting the leadership and stability of The Hayfield School is of utmost importance and will continue to be well-led by the Acting Head during this time.”

The secondary school is celebrating its 40th birthday this year.
