The following letter went out this afternoon from the head, Claire Moreland, correcting a claim in her previous parents’ letter that the police were only investigating ‘historic’ incidents from 20-40 years ago.
Dear ……, I am endeavouring to keep you as up-to-date as I can with any developments in the ongoing police investigation, without wishing to burden you unnecessarily. Following recent media speculation, the police confirmed to me yesterday afternoon that a number of more recent allegations/complaints are being treated as part of their wider investigation. I am sure we can all appreciate why, under the current circumstances, the police are following up on every piece of information passed to them which might be of any potential concern. Unfortunately I am not able to provide any more details at the moment, but I will keep you updated with the best information I can at any one time. As always, if you have any specific concerns please do not hesitate to contact me or any one of my team. Best wishes,….
