Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

A trivial point I appreciate given the awful matters we are discussing.

However Ron was Lorimer not Lorrimer.

Re: Why a teacher DOES NOT have to report abuse

Lorrimer (and Gregory who is unfamiliar to me) were abusers? That's not what Robert is saying. The point he is making is that in law there is apparently no statutory duty for a teacher to report abuse regardless of what the contract of employment may or may not state. He is suggesting that Ron Lori...

Re: All this is incredibly sad

Daniel as a football fan (or what passes for football in league 1) you will be aware of the draconian security the vast majority of decent fans are sometimes subject to especially away from home. It seems in all walks of life that the decent majority has to suffer because of the rogue minority. Like...

No wonder people say the Law is an ass.

Unbelievable.

Did he make an appearance and what happened? Does anyone know, please?


Who ??
I assume Robert is referring to Roger Martin the original subject of this thread.

If so my understanding is that matters were adjourned until March 2019 when it is envisaged a full Hearing will take place.

Re: staff accommodation

Re: Roger Martin

Finally I will add briefly my understanding is that the 'spurious circumstances' to which you refer were based on rumour and gossip rather than any hard facts which were known generally. I would assume that the 'spurious circumstances' described in 2007 were the circumstances described here: http:/...

Re: Roger Martin

It is interesting to read that 2007 thread. E.g. in addition to discussion of McCall's 'spurious circumstances' of departure, there is mention of Burr - here for example a poster hints at the fact that Burr is not a good guy to have around the house: http://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=23&t...

Re: Roger Martin

FYI the topic of McCall's 'spurious circumstances' of departure came up on this board in 2007 about 11 years ago: http://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=317&p=57144&hilit=spurious#p57144 I think he left (maybe under spurious circumstances) at the end of my 3rd form / LE so 1994/5 I think ...

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

Thanks. Reason for asking is that I can find a UK birth record for an Edward R McCall in 1944 (which would appear to be the right age) but not an Ernest R McCall. Obviously if he was born outside of the UK he wouldn't appear on those records. There is no (UK) death record for Edward R McCall. I hav...

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

Are we certain it's Ernest and not Edward? No, well I'm not anyway. During my time In Mid A he was known as ERM when we were being respectable or 'Joe Crow' (no idea why unless it was that he was occasionally a bit scruffy compared to other Masters of the time) when we were not. I never actually di...

Re: Ernest McCall- Maths teacher / housemaster Maine A

McCall was a junior house master in Middleton A when I was there and is / was ER McCall.

I suspect, like some others, he preferred to use his second given Christian name rather than his first.

My brother-in-law is an avid ham radio user and wonders if David WICKS (born 1953) was at CH, and maybe active in signals. If anyone from the 64-71 era recognizes the name. There was a WICKS I am aware of at CH in the time you mention but I do not know his Christian name for sure (it may have been ...

Re: Who Knew What?

Don't get me wrong. I never intended to imply that Dr Scott was a hard inefficient man. At the end of one school term I and a few others were recovering from some bug in the sicker after the rest of school had gone home. We were all put together in one ward with a TV, (rare in the early 1960's), an...
