Head's trial adjourned

15th September 2006 at 01:00
The trial of a north-east primary headteacher accused of assaulting pupils at her school has been adjourned until later in the month. Catherine Taylor denies assaulting nine boys and one girl, aged between four and 11, over a six-year period.

In evidence last week, Mrs Taylor disputed an assertion from the depute fiscal that her judgement about how to manage the behaviour of these children had become impaired.
