Primary school head, 40, and his teacher lover, 26, quit about SATs scandal

A primary school head and his teacher have quit after it emerged pupils were told they could ask for help after 'SATs police' left the room.

Mike Watt, 40, broke up with his wife of 15 years and is now in a relationship with Emma Kelly, 26, whose class was at the center of the exam scandal, The Sun reports.

Year 6 pupils at Colburn Primary School, near Catterick Garrison, North Yorkshire, had part of their SATs scores after having investigated the administration process "did not serve the best interests of the school".

Dad-of-two Mr. Watt was suspended from his £ 80,000-a-year job before deciding to resign.

Ms. Kelly also lives together in Richmond, North Yorkshire. They are now understood to be engaged.
