Re: Roger Martin - trial

Maybe I am on my own here but I don't like the tag team baiting Vilified has been subject to at all. He has answered some rigorous questions fully and expressed contrition. It should stop there. People rightly want transparency regarding the awful abuse that has blighted CH and to know why it was a...

Let's see if I am up to speed:

Physical abuse can be heinous or valid depending on context.

Is that the short summary?
Hello....the search for clarity is commendable, but so is a realisation of the time to withdraw.

Re: Sheila and Peter Higgins - character references for Gary Dobbie

So.my word as a former pupil and a teacher for 27 years at CH following a headship is worth nothing to you? What is this concrete evidence you are seeking? See my previous post for examples of possible concrete evidence. The fact that Dobbie et al got away with so much for so many years, without be...

Re: Sheila and Peter Higgins - character references for Gary Dobbie

Either all staff were 100% aware of what was going on back in the day.... or, it’s possible for staff to believe everything’s fine (and now, that it’s all changed), but there still to be problems in an organisation. I’d suggest it’s extremely risky to suggest there’s 100% no problems, it’s 100% cha...

Re: Here's a hypothetical

The school and its staff were aware of problems for decades. See, for example: https://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=5219&p=142644#p142644 ...much of this site is devoted to analyzing who knew what and when about abuse and bullying (and there is much to read).

Re: Sheila and Peter Higgins - character references for Gary Dobbie

Great, well I'd love to see some concrete evidence of that. We need more than just assurances, the school has committed gross errors. Poulton, Cairncross and Sillett should pay a price for letting this happen. If there's even one case of abuse discovered in more recent years the school should be cl...
