It is with great sadness we inform you that John Balding died Tuesday 13th January.

After a short illness, he passed away in his sleep, at home with his family.

Our thoughts are with his wife and family.

We all owe him more than we can say.

Thank you for following up with schools the comments that caused concern. It is very sad to hear that some of our children have these thoughts and feelings and I am so grateful that you were able to make the schools aware of this so that they can attempt to offer some support.

This is another reason why I am so pleased that we have been able to work with you to offer this survey.
