Has Tidemill lost a talented head? [UPDATED]

SayingNo, the campaign group that aims to prevent Tidemill School in Deptford becoming an Academy, claims headmaster Mark Elms has resigned.


The headmaster, whose pay was the subject of intense media scrutiny when the GMB highlighted it last year, has been on the receiving end of personal criticism from campaigners against the Academy plans and the issue of his salary resurfaced last month in the national media, when teachers union the NASUWT called for heads' salaries to be made public.

Elms had a successful career as head of Gordonbrock before being asked to turn Tidemill around, a challenge which he met with some success.

We hope to confirm the validity of the SayingNo report as soon as possible.

UPDATE: We're glad to report that the report by SayingNo has proven to be groundless.

The claims he has resigned are false. Initially spread by a squatter (who pays no council tax) from Deptford,

"community" possibly the most over and misused word in the English language.

A Squatter? who does not pay council Tax!??
From Deptford?!!

Mark Elms has already said he will commit the rest of his career to Tidemill Academy
