A former Lichfield head teacher has been reported to the General Teaching Council, according to reports.

Ex-Nether Stowe High School principal Barrie Cooper left his job at the West Lakes Academy after teachers lodged a vote of no confidence in his leadership.

Following the move by teachers, Mr Cooper was suspended and an investigation led to Mr Cooper being given a reported £45,000 pay-off by the flagship school.

But now the News & Star reports that the board of governors at West Lakes Academy have reported the incident to the General Teaching Council.
