King Charles is a Church of England school, with the Diocese of Truro centrally involved in its management. The local vicar, the Reverend Stephen Tudgey, pictured, is one of the governors and has known about the parents’ concerns since at least 2010.
As vice chairman of the governors, he was one of those who met with investigator Hugh McCreadie to answer questions about SupplyNet The Packet tried to interview the Rev Tudgey about Mr McCreadie’s investigation. “I have no comment,” he said.
In a statement to the Packet, the Diocese of Truro said: “The Diocese of Truro is aware of the investigation to which you refer. It was commissioned by the local authority, Cornwall Council, and its findings were compiled in a report.
“Subsequent to the investigation, the diocese was asked by the local authority to set up a panel of three independent governors from other schools to review the report and to make recommendations to the chair of governors and the local authority on a confidential basis. It is our understanding that the local authority report is confidential.”
