Following our exclusive exposé in May of the INSTITUTIONAL RACISM scandal rocking east Bristol’s City Academy, an employment tribunal in December backed up everything we said back in The BRISTOLIAN #4.3.
However, despite the official findings showing that major improvements need to be made in management, it seems that old habits die hard: STAFF WERE KEPT IN THE DARK until 23 January, shortly before the media storm hit. Completely coincidentally, Gill Kelly has so far kept her job as Principal… But has been DUMPED as head of the One World Learning Trust.
Whether that’s due to white supremacist attitudes of the school’s bosses or poorer exam results than expected isn’t yet clear…
Seems that The City Academy have also dumped her now. Asked to resign from her post and did so last Thursday. The staff cheered when the announcement was made. Says it all!
