The future of a headteacher found not guilty of sex offences against children is still hanging in the balance.
John McEnaney, aged 60, head of Woodlands Primary School, was cleared at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court last week of two charges against a pair of 11-year-old girls.
He had been accused of rubbing himself against one and squeezing the bottom of the other.
Outside court, jubilant parents who had backed Mr McEnaney throughout his ordeal, called for him to be reinstated immediately following his suspension after his arrest last summer.
But Doncaster Council has said at the moment the suspension of Mr McEnaney, who lives in Park Drive, Sprotbrough will continue.
Jo Moxon, council assistant director of education, said: “We are aware of the court’s decision.
“We have taken the necessary safeguarding steps and he is currently not in school while internal procedures take place.”
Mr McEnaney was voted Doncaster best headteacher at an awards ceremony last year and has been in charge at Woodlands for ten years.
