I really think "pressure cooker" context is key here, and would explain why EP didn't call police straight away. Having a headteacher call LE, when she has a new,, high profile (for an educator) leadership job, and if she has ambitions of moving up, might be VERY tricky.Damn, just hearing about this case now. I wonder if she spoke about any relationship problems with anyone or even the reason as to why she called the relative the night before? I guess it'll be revealed if so. Such a sad situation though for everyone involved.
I wonder how difficult it was to get this job? Were the school governors all on board? I'm wondering whether there were headwinds on the job or the selection process that would create unbearable stresses and add to an already volatile mix.
I also want to point out that LE sensibly hasn't run to the assumption that domestic violence means a woman was victim. They haven't ruled out any dynamic; to my mind, this would include a scenario where a partner became scared for his/her life after being attacked and went for the gun.
