Re: Agenda for meeting on 13th Sept & statements

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...

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.

I will come back to you on this.

Re: Response from the Head Master

Basically compensation does not cover historical counselling unless it can be fully proved and costed. The issue is future treatment and that is extremely difficult to assess. There are courses of therapy but whether they work or not is a very moot point. Unlike financial loss where they look at 10 ...

Re: Response from the Head Master

Hi John At this stage no. No financial support has been provided other to one individual who applied to the BSB (Benevolent Society of Blues). The school has made no attempt to offer support or even asked if anyone needs it. I am still awaiting to hear if a letter has even been sent to the latest vi...
