Today, I received this e-mail from the Headteacher at St Bartholomew’s School in Haslemere.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have been notified by our colleagues at The Petersfield School that last Thursday morning there was an attempt to pull a student walking to school into a dark coloured car with heavily tinted windows near the bottom of Bell Hill in Petersfield.
Police have been informed and are investigating.
We have advised all students on keeping safe when coming to and leaving school – walk with friends, avoid dark lonely areas, and if you find yourself in any sort of uncomfortable situation, draw as much attention to yourself as you can and leave as quickly as possible to a public place and alert a trusted adult.
Please reiterate this with your child.
