Marjorie Evans accused of further assault



A head teacher who won an 18-month battle to clear her name after being falsely accused of slapping an unruly pupil has been the subject of a new police investigation involving another child. The Crown Prosecution Service received a file from police following an allegation that Marjorie Evans, 59, pulled the hair of an 11-year-old girl pupil while restraining her. Yesterday, it was revealed that Gwent police submitted a new file on Mrs Evans to the CPS after the girl made the complaint last September. However, the CPS told Mrs Evans this week that there was “insufficient evidence” for further action. Mrs Evans, a teacher for 38 years, was suspended for 18 months in 1999 after allegations that she slapped a 10-year-old boy. She was cleared on appeal and returned to the 200-pupil St Mary’s Junior School, Caldicot, south Wales, in March 2001.Mrs Evans said: “The allegation is total rubbish. But it seems that teachers are still there to be shot at.” The girl’s family said they were “disgusted” with the CPS decision. 24 July 2001: Inquiry attacks schools chiefs in slapping row
