Welsh head sues her bosses in landmark race case
Bitter religious divisions on a primary school's governing body plunged the headteacher into acute depression and destroyed her career, a leading judge was told yesterday.
Erica Connor of Skenfrith, Abergavenny, says her nerves were left shattered by "harassment" and a string of "vituperative" complaints against her while she was head of the New Monument School in Woking, Surrey, which has a high proportion of pupils from an Islamic background.
Now, in the first case of its kind, the 57-year-old – who says she was left as a "helpless scapegoat" – is seeking hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation from Surrey County Council, claiming her bosses did not do enough to support her.
