The nature of the investigation has not been revealed by the Police or the School although a spokesperson for Derbyshire Police stated that “safeguarding concerns” had been raised.
The Derby Telegraph reported “that it is understood the case is not related to a separate Repton School staff member who was arrested at the end of January on suspicion of attempting sexual contact with a child who was not at the school. That staff member no longer works at the school”.
The Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Board has also been made aware of the incident and it is understood that a multi-agency approach around the concerns raised is being taken.
The head teacher of Repton School, Alastair Land, informed parents in an email that an investigation is currently underway involving a Repton staff member. The email informed the parents that the staff member in question is on indefinite leave is is no longer carrying out any school duties.
