Justice has taken too long…

A number of colleagues contacted me after I reported on the battle Trystan Williams has undertaken to clear his name.

I am utterly delighted to say that another hurdle has been cleared with ease.

Quote: “The agency found there was no case for Mr Williams to answer following his dismissals as head teacher at the Springfields Academy in Calne, a school for children with complex learning, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

The announcement follows a similar decision by the Crown Prosecution Service in October 2014 that no charges would be brought against Mr Williams or his deputy James Lynch.

Mr Lynch has also been cleared by the NCTL who will now pass the information to the Disclosure and Barring Scheme (DBS) formerly the Criminal Records Bureau and Independent Safeguarding Authority.

Mr Williams said: “It is the first time I have slept properly in 21 months. This is the first major step forward and I am looking forward to getting my life back on track and cracking on with what I do best.”

I understand that Trystan is relentlessly pursuing those individuals who were responsible for prolonging proceedings against him, who tried time and again to destroy him despite evidence stacked in his favour. One wonders sometimes if there is any difference in the words prosecute and persecute.

I wish Trystan every success in exposing the lamentable behaviour of certain officials, who went well beyond “risk aversion” in an attempt to hide systemic failings on their own watch, perhaps.

Too many good leaders have had their careers blighted by either wrongful persecution or the tyranny of the “compromise agreement”.

Let Trystan’s case be a beacon of hope.
