Ofsted chief who quit over Rotherham abuse lands new job

A FORMER Ofsted chief forced to apologise for failures in detecting the abuse of 1,400 children in Rotherham has landed a new job — and a £75,000 pay-off.

John Goldup (pictured), former deputy head of Ofsted, was forced to apologise over failure to detect that 1,400 teen girls were abused by gangs in Rotherham and later left his £155,000-a-year role at the organisation.

But details published in Ofsted’s annual accounts have revealed that he pocketed £75,000 as “compensation for loss of office” upon his departure.
