School’s safeguarding ‘not robust’
11:30am Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
AN emergency inspection into an independent school found safeguarding procedures to be “insufficiently robust” after pupils cut themselves with blades during an art history lesson.
The teacher who oversaw the lesson at Ringwood Waldorf School was suspended and later resigned from her post as an investigating was begun.
An investigation was carried out by the School Inspection Service (SIS) and the report said: “Procedures for safeguarding are at present insufficiently robust. “This is because standards about the welfare, health and safety of pupils at the school are not met.”
School administrator Nigel Revill said: “The incident involved a part-time teacher, who acted independently without our knowledge.
“The SIS has made several recommendations, which we are implementing in line with the timescales set by the SIS and the Department for Education (DfE).”
