THE father of Bradley John, the St John Lloyd’s pupil who died at the school on September 12th has spoken of his belief that the most important aspect of school life is ‘being nice to people’.
Mr John has also reiterated his claim that his 14-year-old son was bullied for 18 months while at the school and has subsequently called for the resignation of the headteacher.
Speaking to around 50 people outside St John Lloyd’s School today, Friday (Sep 21) Byron John said:
Everyone as parents needs to do something about it. We need to be heard. League tables aren’t that important in the scheme of things. Pythagoras theorem isn’t going to affect many children. Being nice to people is.
Neither the school nor Carmarthenshire County Council have made any comments regarding the allegations of bullying but the school have expressed their concern that the speculation in the media over what had happened to Bradley could cause concern and anxiety.
Carmarthenshire County Council has said that it is working with a wide range of agencies to ensure the safety and well being of school staff and pupils.
Dyfed-Powys Police is still investigating the circumstances surrounding Bradley’s death.
