Parents/Carers as the temperature is rising the school will be open tomorrow. Please be careful and stay safe on your journey to school.

Dear Parents/Carers


Last week we had an incident where a child was approached on the way to school. School gave safety advice  to all our Year 6 pupils and parents contacted the police. We now have a police response which we can circulate to all parents to raise everyone’s awareness to keep all of our children safe. Please read below.


Please be aware that we have had two incidents in the Worsbrough area where pupils have seen a black 3 door vehicle with a male driver driving slowly around Schools at start times. On one occasion the male asked a pupil if they wanted a lift to School. This was declined and the male drove away.


The local neighbourhood police team will be giving extra patrols in the area at School starting and finishing times to try and identify the vehicle and driver. I would asked that staff and parents are made aware of the vehicle. If anyone see’s anything they think is suspicious please contact the police on 101 or 999 in an emergency. 


Please also be advised that school staff will be present at the end and beginning of each day as always to ensure our children are safe as well as ensuring a quick response where needed.


Kind regards,


Mrs Binns
