Head teacher made a valued contribution
THE joint statement about Elizabeth Logan's resignation from Cottingham High School follows six months of uncertainty.
The precise nature of the allegations that sparked her suspension has not been made public. Perhaps it never will be.
But, no matter what happened, nothing can take away from Mrs Logan's contribution to Cottingham High School.
Her two years as head teacher saw the school make the transition into being an academy. Pupil numbers went up and exam results improved.

Whatever the allegations, no one has said she was not a committed head or that she did not put the pupils first.
Parents are understandably reticent about being named in newspaper articles discussing developments at their children's school. But, off the record, many were pleased to see Cottingham High led by a head recognised by Ofsted for her leadership qualities. Mrs Logan even won the nickname "Loganator" for her no-nonsense approach.
Now she has gone, parents of pupils at the school will be watching to make sure standards do not slip.
It is good to know acting head teacher Will Jennings has the support and respect of his colleagues in maintaining excellent progress at Cottingham High School.
