Re: New Victim comes forward

Hi Chaps Interesting two days - I will come back to you. I am meeting with a victim today so need space. However I will say the school (Hi Business manager reading this and thanks for the last two days) is really interacting with the idea of reconciliation. This is good - they need to. Rob - oh by t...

Re: New Victim comes forward

Actually a cup of tea and a biscuit is better than nothing! The meeting will now be without prejudice so no legal inference can be applied. BUT what is the point? I am starting to think I am wasting my time and life (what little is left) on this. We can't agree on an agenda; we can't agree on a loca...

Re: New Victim comes forward

I can confirm that a further investigation is taking place by the police re a master at CH. The master has already been tried for another/other cases. It is NOT Peter Burr. It is a single victim. The editorial dept. and the legal dept. at The Times are meeting today to see if they feel able to relea...

Re: New Victim comes forward

I'll let you know more tomorrow - but the person has come forward to the police. The school is simply irrelevant.

New Victim comes forward

Dear All I will not be flavour of the month but a further victim of sexual abuse at CH has come forward. This once again may stop any press on the matter of CH. I have deep reservations on this. But it is what it is. I know no details - who the accused is or when. I suggest that you do not speculate...

Absolutely right - but it will bring past wrong doings into the lime light!

Re: Agenda for meeting on 13th Sept & statements

OK so not two hours: These are the topics to be discussed - you'll get full details about one minute after I have passed them to CH! That should actually be by Wednesday next.

Agenda for meeting on 13th Sept & statements

Hi All I think that I told you all that there will be a further meeting with the Redress Committee of CH on 13th September. I am unable to give you the agenda which I have set just yet as it needs to go to CH first. Within it there are a substantial number of questions and you will see all of this i...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Not quite true There are two further phases of IICSA in this particular part of the inquiry. They can choose not to cover a specific case study. However, if a significant number of persons has requested this should happen of a particular institution they can be held in contempt of the rules of the I...

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Yup - if there is a current court case that involves CH they would not want to look at CH as it could interfere with the Criminal proceedings - however there may be a way round this.

I'll come back on this shortly.

Re: IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Thank you Marty & Dazed&C What Marty has written is pretty much what is needed - short and simple. Interesting about Ampleforth & Downside. I can't remember which one, but at one of them they introduced safeguarding only to find the safeguarding officer, a priest, being caught doing something person...

IICSA - Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse

Dear All The IICSA inquiry into Residential Independent Schools (Public Schools) will start Phase II in September. Phase I looked at 'Closed Schools' such as Sherbourne Prep and Music Schools. They will now look at the mainstream Public Schools. Simon Reid has already written to IICSA (with the appr...

Re: Response from the Head Master

Trying to follow all of the threads - firstly all victims of sexual abuse can remain anonymous UNLESS they choose to break that - in my case I did and just as well or you lot wouldn't be having the debate that you are! To break anonymity has severe consequential issues. Your name is out there as wel...

Re: Response from the Head Master

Thanks all

There were house choirs and we had a competition each Mich term. I had to conduct I think twice and performed once.

But this is not what I am looking at.

I will come back to you on this.
