Re: Revamping of Christ Church Newgate St

I did not mean "personally responsible" but their personal actions could make the council liable for costs c.£10-12k.

Re: Revamping of Christ Church Newgate St

It will be approved on appeal. No major agencies objected. Local councillors will inevitably change their vote for fear of being personally financially liable.

Re: Sentencing of Garry William Dobbie

Apologies. Unreserved apologies.
I have re-read your posts from last summer.
I must have appeared insensitive.
You have only my admiration and very best wishes.

Sometime in Feb is the likely date.
Wonderfully succinct speculation!

Hey you lot

Didn't know that they are looking for a new deputy head. Has Flemming gone?
Mrs Marlene Fleming is retiring next summer.

Re: All this is incredibly sad

I have a lot of confidence in Simon Reid and the policies are very reassuring to read. Managing a school of that size and complexity can be no mean feat. I’m certain that if I visited the school now the difference in the welfare and safety of pupils would be indisputable, however I’m not sure that ...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

I really am very heartened by these policies. I couldn't give a fig about the odd spelling mistake or grammatical error. If those are your priorities then go back to your cave. I particularly like the policy on Standards of Pupil Behaviour which states that respect for others and their property mus...

Re: Attitudes to sports

Talking of sport, oldies among us will remember the athletics track, which was dug up some years ago and turned into a carpark. Now, under a revolutionary plan, the carpark is to be dug up and turned into - would you believe? - an athletics track. That's progress. No wonder the school has to keep a...
