Bullying 'played no role' in Woolwich teen Sinead Taylor's suicide
Bullying did not play a part in the suicide of 15-year-old Sinead Taylor, found hanging in her Woolwich home, an inquest has concluded.
The talented dancer was discovered by her mother in the hallway on August 23 last year.
Sinead had been bullied at Plumstead Manor School, transferring to Corelli College two years before her death to escape the problem.
And in the months before her suicide, the teen had made an online video warning suicide and self harm were not the answer to bullying.
But yesterday (May 15) at Southwark Coroner's Court, coroner Lorna Tagiavini said the girl’s suicide note made no mention of bullying and the problem had been successfully resolved by moving schools.
Concluding Sinead took her own life, Ms Tagiavini said: “I’d like to place on record my personal condolences to all members of Sinead’s family for their very sad and their very tragic loss.”
