The Governing Board has recently received anonymous complaints, made on behalf of former members of the school’s staff, concerning allegations about the working environment and management of the school. Whilst it would appear that many of the complaints have already been considered by our regulatory bodies, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and Ofsted, we take all such allegations seriously. To provide assurance and create a forum for these matters to be independently considered, the Board has taken immediate steps to commission an independent, external review which will report back next term. We have also shared the complaints with the ESFA and Ofsted. So as not to prejudice the findings of the review, it would not be appropriate to comment on the individual claims at this stage other than to say that we take matters of this nature very seriously and await the review’s findings. The wellbeing of our pupils and staff is, and always will be, our foremost priority. The leadership team, together with Holland Park’s committed and energetic staff, have achieved remarkable results for our pupils and the school community at large over many years. The last 18 months have placed extraordinary pressures on schools, their pupils and parents, staff and leadership teams, and we are immensely proud of how everyone within the Holland Park School community has risen to meet the many challenges. We would like to thank everyone at the school for their exceptional work.
