Co Fermanagh school investigated over 'inappropriate behaviour'

The PSNI is investigating a report of ‘non-recent inappropriate’ behaviour at a Co Fermanagh school.

The investigation comes weeks after issues around safeguarding at the school were highlighted as part of an inspection report.

The police have said they are 'making enquiries to 'establish the circumstances' around the report of inappropriate behaviour.

A PSNI spokesperson confirmed that an investigation had been launched into the school.

“Police have received a report of allegations of non-recent inappropriate behaviour,” the spokesperson said.

“An investigation has been launched and we are making enquiries to establish the circumstances.

“We will continue to work with our partners to protect and safeguard children. There are no further details at this time.”

A series of inspections into the school found recently that safeguarding arrangements were ‘unsatisfactory’.

The report, from the Education and Training Inspectorate, highlighted a number of concerns around safeguarding of pupils not being addressed by the school.

An original inspection of the school was carried out in 2012, with three follow-up inspections having been ordered in more than a decade since.

In the most recent inspection carried out in March 2023, the report states that safeguarding arrangements at the school were "unsatisfactory" and highlighted areas which need ‘urgent’ improvements.
