Today one parent, who did not want to be named, said: “I am disgusted. I can’t believe she was allowed to live with a man who would do something like that and then come in to work with children. I don’t know if he has been into the nursery, but it is terrifying.
It’s terrifying that this is a free country, one can have a relationship with whoever one wishes? Really?
“The council should take action immediately. The situation might not be illegal but no parent with a child at the nursery will be able to sleep at night.”
If the situation isn’t illegal, what are you expecting the council to do…?
The massively over-reactive (and ineffective) child protection laws are designed to target those coming into contact with children, not those coming into contact with those who come into contact with children…
A spokesman for Merton council said: “Private providers have a duty to notify Ofsted and the council of potential child protection concerns and we will set up a multi-agency strategy meeting to discuss the allegations.”
And do…what? Apart from enjoy some tea and biscuits on the taxpayer?
