KARL posted an article in Local NewsThe popular headteacher of Harrop Fold school in Little Hulton was suspended back in July after allegations of removing "Off-Rolling" children academically performing poorly from the school register in order to skew the schools performance statistics, something Mr Povey strongly denies. The school was graded as Good by Ofsted after previously being amongst the ranks of some of the worst schools in the country. Today he announced on his Twitter account that it was 'quitting with a heavy heart' and added that he believes his treatment was the result of a personal vendetta against himself and three other members of staff who are under investigation along side him. The school which features in the popular Channel 4 "Educating Manchester" tv show was left with £3.5m debt by Salford City Council. During his tenure at the school, Mr Povey and his team reduced that amount by over a half to just £1.6m and he even contributed £100,000 of his own money from earnings made whilst giving leadership talks thanks to his elevated profile. Mr Povey hit back at his accusers by using his resignation letter to place blame for the schools previous failings and the huge debt it had amassed squarely at the Councils feet. With regards the schools progress he said: Mr Povey went on to add that he still remains supportive of the school and also offered to work with them pro-bono at the school for a couple of days per week to help provide a stable hand until a new leadership is chosen, In summing up his thoughts he went on to say: Mr Povey's resignation will come as an upset to those who support him, a protest was held outside of the school within days of his suspension, with many parents crediting the schools recent success with his leadership.
