Monday 18th March – CEO response

Mar 18, 2024

This afternoon, St Hild’s implemented a temporary lockdown in response to a potential safety concern brought to our attention. We acted swiftly alongside Cleveland Police, following established protocols to ensure the safety and well-being of all pupils and staff.

The safety of our school community is paramount, and we will always take decisive action to uphold it. We are pleased to inform everyone that the situation has been resolved, and the school will resume normal operations tomorrow morning.

We extend our sincere gratitude to parents and carers for their understanding during this disruption. We also commend our school staff for their professional handling of the situation, our pupils for their exemplary behavior under the circumstances, and Cleveland Police and local authorities for their swift and calm response. Finally, we thank our entire school community for their unwavering support.

To ensure everyone feels comfortable returning to school, additional support will be available within the building over the next few days.
