I'm afraid I also cant read this without commenting. As the reconciliation process between former pupils and teachers gets underway, the Governors felt they might help the process by stating where they stand on a number of important questions. Might not an important first step to a reconciliation pr...

Can I urge any parent with concerns to contact the above two individuals. And if the reply is unsatisfactory you could consider writing directly to Ms Kelly, asking her why the education authority she is responsible for is not taking this seriously. I understand she's feeling a little sensitive wit...

Everyone is frightened to talk to anyone else for the fear that they may be an SES member. Meetings take place secretly between parents in order to find out the truth. I can understand how sensitive this is, with children still at the school. why not just pass the address of this bulletin board aro...

Parents of the junior school were not even told about the inquiry until a few days before the report was published. Farcical meetings then took place two weeks later at which only a handful of parents showed up. These meetings were given by the junior school headmaster and one of the governors. Tho...

Parents are hardly able to utter the words SES in the school courtyard, do you honestly think that they are going to call up some reporter and divulge what they know? I dont' think so. Why are parents so scared of the SES? I spent 10 years as a child at their school. I was scared of the pain, the r...

Welcome back Andrew! I was wondering what your thoughts were on encountering this forum so long after your previous involvement. Is any of this new ? or were you aware of some of it back in ?83? I was a pupil at the schools at the time, and remember hearing about the standard articles and thinking ?...

Thanks for making this post Cheryl - very few parents have posted here. I hope the Inquirys validation of much of whats been said here by former pupils will mark a turning point - where parents, those who are willing, can start to really question why all this happened. I think the answers may well n...

hi ET, I agree its more effective not to be anonymous when making comments or statements about the school. However as you point out, there are valid reasons for many people not to want to be identifiable - damage to family relationships being a major one. If a parent of a child currently at the scho...

Just to try to help clear up some of the ambiguity... With regards to the events at St J&V, I have been advised that the police will investigate any complaint about a criminal act that a person makes to them. It doesnt have to be made by the victim, but obviously if the victim keeps shtum or can...

Reading the RTT privacy policy, it states that all who write letters to the editor must supply their name and address. If I ask them not to print these details, does anyone on here know whether they are then legally obligated not to print them? I am not prepared to write to them unless I can have a...

MM, I?m surprised by this as I?ve heard of at least one fairly recent direct approach to the NSPCC about st James. It wouldn?t be surprising if there had been others. David Boddy, the current Head, recently said that he had invited relevant authorities in to the school to let them know about the inq...

I heard Jeremy Sinclair, partner of advertising moguls Charles and Maurice Saatchi is a long time member (He was a founder of Saatchi and Saatchi in 1970, and Chairman and co founder of M&C Saatchi) Makes sense as Jeremy Sinclair (presumably the same one) is also listed as a Trustee of the Jyoti...
