Statement regarding videos posted on Tik Tok and associated comments
As a school, we have been made aware of some videos posted on the social media site Tik Tok. The videos contain alleged comments made by a member of staff in a discussion on the current crisis in the Middle East. We encourage all students to speak to a senior member of staff about their concerns, and are taking this matter very seriously. As with any allegation we are following our agreed procedures including liaising with our partners in the Local Authority and keeping members of the Governing Body informed. When this concludes we will take any appropriate action.
Kingsbury High is a vibrant, multi-ethnic school committed to equal opportunity, celebrating diversity and keeping those in other parts of the world who may be experiencing difficulty in our thoughts. This is why in 2018 we committed to the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools programme. The school community has been deeply affected by the tragic events in the Middle East and many students have understandably felt very strongly about this. Over the next few days we will be giving students further opportunity to discuss this situation and think about how we might, as a whole school, respond to this terrible situation.
