(Photograph) - Rod Weatherhead's career could have ended in ruin after an 11-year-old pupil sat national curriculum tests early. Accused of cheating, Mr Weatherhead was suspended and investigated, and has now been cleared by both the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority and a disciplinary hearing. The Rochdale primary head has spoken for the first time of his nightmare experience. Photograph by PAULINE NEILD.
