TRIBUNAL FOR NEATH PORT TALBOT HEAD WHO QUIT OVER 'PHANTOM' PUPILS

A headmistress accused of claiming 27 'phantom' pupils to get more cash for her school won the first round of her fight to clear her name yesterday, reports The Daily Telegraph (p11).

An employment tribunal in Cardiff backed an application from Rhiannon Jones, former head of Ynysmaerdy primary school at Briton Ferry near Swansea, to take her case to a full hearing.

She resigned from the school in October after details of the pupils were uncovered by education chiefs at Neath Port Talbot CBC. Mrs Jones had been head for 10 years. The tribunal was told she resigned on 19 October but made the application to it on 29 January, outside the three-month deadline.

But Michael Bird, the tribunal chairman, said she should be allowed, to continue her fight because she had been paid until the end of October.
