Headteacher of primary school in Harlesden is sacked
He was suspended in January following allegations of financial mismanagement
A primary school headteacher suspended over allegations of financial and curriculum mismanagement has been sacked.
Alan King was removed from his post at Furness Primary School in Furness Road, Harlesden, in January this year after Brent Council received a confidential letter questioning his conduct.
He was formally dismissed last month.
A council spokeswoman said: “The council acted swiftly to suspend Mr King when allegations of gross misconduct were raised, took control of the school’s budget, established an interim executive board to oversee the running of the school and installed an acting headteacher to take the school forward.
