Stranger danger

You may have heard the Police Report on the News about a man committing a sexual crime next to St Matthews Primary yesterday. I have also had a report from my daughter's school in Sale of a suspicious man in a van trying to talk to children. If your child walks home on their own, please see if they can walk in pairs, remind them not to speak to/answer to strangers and to let them know they can come straight back into school if they feel unsafe and we will contact you. School is always open and staffed until at least 5pm.

I will talk to the group of children who walk home tomorrow to reinforce the message (without going into details obviously).

I am sure this man will be arrested soon but in the meantime we all need to keep a look out for suspicious behaviour. We will always report things in for you if you need us to.

Kind regards,

Mrs Nunwick
