Dear Parents and Carers
We have notified students this afternoon through their period 5 class teachers of the following incident:
A member of our school has reported being followed on her way home from school yesterday by a white Mercedes Sprinter van. She sensibly called a family member while she was walking so that they were aware and were able to come out of the home to meet her. This has been reported to the Local Authority and the Police. We have advised all students to take the following precautions where possible:
- Walk in groups or pairs.
- Be vigilant to what is happening around them.
- Not to approach any unknown person or vehicle.
- To use their mobile to call 999 if they feel in danger.
- To return to school if they are still close by.
Please take some time this evening to reinforce with your child how to stay safe on their way to and from school and whilst they are outside the family home.
Many thanks for your support
