Dear Parent/Carer,

Statement by the Associate Head teacher

Barr’s Hill School has become aware that a video depicting an assault on one of our students is circulating on social media. The school prioritises the health and safety and well-being of its students above all other things and treats any incident such as this with the seriousness it deserves.

We wish to confirm that this incident took place in May last year, off school premises and outside school hours and was thoroughly investigated by the police and resolved at that time. We are satisfied that none of our students were involved in the attack. We wish to reassure anyone who is concerned about this student that he is fine and has received appropriate support since the incident took place. Finally, we want to thank members of the community who have contacted us expressing their concern for our student and support for the school.

Yours Sincerely,

cjupp sig

Mr C. Jupp

Headteacher
