More Problems at Westland’s
I have now put 2 articles on Facebook and on my Blog concerning Bullying at Westland’s School the two articles attracted over 220 comments mainly about students been bullied. Now I have just been told about a dangerous case of bullying. A friend of mine son’s was threatened with a knife and was encourage by a friend of the attacker to knife him or in the words of the boy “Shank Him”
Needless to say he went to see the Headmaster Mr Cox who responded that they never had a knifing in the School and the knife was only a fishing knife. The father retorted a knife is a knife and can still kill, the father went on to ask about the boy who said shank him. The Head said that this boy has psychological problem and he fantasied about violence and would draw pictures of people being stabbed in the eye. He was only a fantasist, yet nothing was done about him. My friend got extremely angry and threatened to contact the Police, the reply was go ahead who cares. He stormed out the Office but sadly did not contact the Police.
Now my information is second hand but my friend is prepared to give his name and the names of the two boys if the school deny this. It time the School took responsibility of the safety of their pupils. Sorry to say the Schools Management never respond to these accusation
When will Ofsted and other authorities start to investigate the Management of Westland’s which has major problems and that has to be due to bad management, the person responsible for that management is Jon Whitcombe CEO Swale Academies Trust, I am in no way connected to Westland’s or the Trust but one has to ask the question is the CEO position in the Trust still tenable?
