Response to the OFSTED report, 10 June 2021


“Today’s OFSTED report outlines the amount of work that is needed across all of society to address the issue of sexual harassment and misogyny, which exists in all coeducational, independent and maintained schools, and all other walks of life. We are determined that we will continue to play a full and active part in addressing these issues.


Safeguarding is an integral part of our school’s culture and practice, and sex and relationships education has quite rightly never received more prominence. Pupil voice is actively sought and King’s, in common with all independent schools, is carefully regulated and rigorously inspected on a regular basis.


In addition to the measures already in place at King’s, where we have been proactive in addressing these matters, we will take the due care and time the report deserves to examine its findings and recommendations. As a Foundation, we continue to develop our PSHE offering as well committing to introduce procedural changes where appropriate and needed to continue to ensure the education, safety and wellbeing of all children”.
