    My heart goes out to everyone involved in the terrible incident today.

    Having only recently moved from the area - it seems very surreal.

    May Bailey Gwynne rest in peace, may his family be consoled and may his murderer know justice. Amen.

    As a former Head I cannot understand and comprehend what this school has gone through. It's the absolute pits.

    The Head of that school, irrespective of fact, will feel responsible forever.

    Its vile.

    S1 pupil in my school. First day. Knife. Suspended for a few days. Offering it for sale. S3 pupils offering to buy.
    It will happen again.

    There was only one incident I had to deal with in 17 years of Headship. A child had taken a chisel from Technical and he went for a fellow student in the canteen. Caused damaged to the boys knee. Can't remember the exact damage, it was many years ago.

    However, he was excluded, permanently and my recommendation was the he was educated in a behaviour support facility - which he was. Regardless of whether he got a place there or not, he was leaving my school for good.

    Intolerable.
