Three members of staff at a special school in Kent have been reinstated after "serious allegations" against them were found to be unproven.

Two teachers and one teaching assistant were suspended from Wyvern School, Ashford, in November following claims by a parent of a pupil.

Kent County Council said the allegations were "thoroughly investigated" and found to be unproven.

It said the inquiry also found the school could improve its communication.

The investigation was carried out under the terms of the Kent and Medway Safeguarding Children Procedures.

'Make further improvements'

A letter sent to parents stated: "In November 2010 you were advised that allegations had been made about the school and some members of its staff. This has also been reported by the local media.

"The allegations have been thoroughly investigated by agencies external to the school and found to be unproven.

"The investigation has identified some areas where the school can continue to make further improvements, such as communication with parents and other services that support children in the school.

"The school is committed to making these improvements."
