The Chair of Governors at Porters Grange School, Sam Richardson said: “The Governing Body at Porters Grange is pleased to report that an independent investigation into the administration of tests and the use of pupil data at the school has found no evidence of wrongdoing.
"The head teacher Ros Ferdinand was suspended in June pending the outcome of an independent investigation which was launched when concerns were raised about the administrative running of the school.
"Any such concerns have to be investigated and suspension is a neutral act used to enable such investigations to proceed fairly and impartially.
"Additional support has been provided to the school staff during this difficult period to ensure disruption was kept to a minimum and that the education of the young people attending the school was not affected.
"Mrs Ferdinand has subsequently retired but the governors would like to place on record their thanks for all her efforts during her time at Porters Grange.
"A new head teacher is now in place and we are confident she will continue Mrs Ferdinand's good work."
