A HEADTEACHER is under investigation over claims she called a Year 11 pupil “Mr Autistic”.
Nicola Partridge allegedly used the term after catching the lad, who has Asperger’s, vaping.
An audio clip recorded secretly later features a female voice telling the boy, “I’m sorry” and “I didn’t mean to do that”.
The student says: “You should know my mental issues and needs. For you to sit there and call me Mr Autistic is f*g vile.”
His parent, who lodged a complaint, said her son was “fuming” when he rang from Meadowbrook College in Marston, Oxon, on January 17.
They said: “He’s angry and upset. He’s had his disability used as an insult against him.”
The Radcliffe Academy Trust, which oversees Meadowbrook, said it will be handled through its complaints procedure.
