SuffolkNews Podcast: Headmaster of Culford School near Bury St Edmunds sacked for ‘gross misconduct and breach of trust’

In today’s podcast, the headmaster of a Suffolk independent school has been dismissed from his role.

Julian Johnson-Munday has been sacked as headmaster of Culford School following an independent investigation.

A letter to parents today said the probe, conducted by an independent lawyer, found he had breached a number of the school’s internal policies and constituted ‘gross misconduct and a breach of trust that was incompatible with his leadership role’. The allegations did not concern pupils.
