A SUFFOLK boarding school said today they are “pleased” inquiries into allegations of “inappropriate behaviour” against two members of staff have been concluded.

Suffolk police and social services launched the investigation following concerns raised at an Ofsted inspection earlier this year at Old Buckenham Hall, in Brettenham.

It has now been announced no further police action will be taken against the two members of staff who have been helping officers with their inquiries.

A Suffolk police spokeswoman said: “Following extensive inquiries into allegations of inappropriate behaviour by members of staff at a school in West Suffolk, Suffolk Constabulary can confirm that its investigation has concluded and no police action will be taken.

“Our findings have been passed to the school and Suffolk County Council.”

In March investigations against a female member of staff were dropped with inquiries into the second member of staff continuing.

A spokesman for the school: “We can confirm that Suffolk Constabulary has concluded all investigations into two members of staff and that no further police action will be taken.

“The findings have now been passed to the school for consideration. We are pleased that this investigation is over.”

The news will be welcomed by worried parents who called for answers after receiving letters from the school and Suffolk County Council informing them of the investigations, in February.
