Payment riposte

21st May 2010 at 01:00

In response to "'Dishonest' head gets 2-year ban for pocketing #163;5k destined for school funds" (May 7), Blackburn with Darwen Council would like to make clear that it has never made payments to a school improvement partner who is a serving head. Our policy has always been to make payments to the school's governing body and this remains the case.

Gladys Rhodes, Strategic director of children's services, Blackburn with Darwen Council.
