Mr Dunne was a fantastic headteacher and inspirational leader. The GST has treated him and his family in disgracefully manner and must face justice and should be investigated. Their appalling behaviour has devastated the whole community in Walton!!!!

The poor headteacher has been clearly scapegoated and it's heartwarming to see he has so muc support. After a long career in education myself, I can see what's going on and it's happening to too many brilliant educationalists. Schools need to go back to being accountable to their local authorities and these trusts should dismantled

It is unfair to force a good head teacher to leave and not give a fair hearing to him.

This is plainly an issue which requires a full, independent investigation.

Richard was an inspiration to my children. While they were at Ashley I always had 150% trust
I that they were in the best possible place they could be. He is a caring, honest and hard working person who leads by example. No-one deserves to be treated in the callous way he has been by the GST least of all him.

Richard did not deserve the treatment he received by the trust , our twins went to Ashley and received the most amazing education, we only had one year of the Trust while we were there and are saddened that they ruined the career of an excellent Headmaster and put him and his family through such distress

Thanks for adding your voice.

Richard and his family have been so unfairly treated through all this, the GST needs to be brought to account at once.
