Some readers may have seen a scurrilous story in the Tunbridge Wells Courier today, mentioning the name of this school. The source of this story is rooted in a domestic child protection case, the details of which for obvious reasons cannot and should not be in the public domain. The only thing we would want to say about the matter is that what appears in the Courier is largely fictional and does not reflect the reality of the case in any way at all. We have no idea what source the newspaper had for this “information”. The publication of this “story” has harmed children and families. It is simply very regrettable that this newspaper has attempted to create media sensation out of a very complex individual social services case which it knows almost nothing about.
