Rainhill High School Statement

Rainhill High School Statement

 
Parents and local community members may have heard rumours regarding an incident involving a parent trying to gain access to the site last week and we therefore would like to dispel those rumours by providing you with the facts.
 
On Thursday 7th June 2018, a parent attempted to gain access to the school looking to confront someone else’s child about an incident that had occurred outside of school. Thanks to the prompt action of staff, no child was hurt and the parent did not gain access to the building.
 
This follows an unrelated, instance several months ago, involving a video being posted on Facebook regarding an alleged instance of bullying.
 
The school recognises its wider responsibility for the education and safety of pupils and therefore, in instances such as those mentioned above, would always liaise with the relevant agencies (such as the Police and Local Authority Safeguarding Unit) immediately in order to bring the issue(s) to a swift and satisfactory resolution.
 
It should be noted that both of the aforementioned matters have now been resolved.
 
The school continues to view the safety of its pupils and staff as its top priority.  Should you ever have any concerns, you should always contact the school via telephone, email or in person.
