Wickersley Comp Headteacher responds to rumours of students being approached

Following the publication of the Jay Report and police appeals for information about an incident in which two girls were approached on the Tanyard, we have become aware of rumours within the community that students may also have been approached outside Wickersley School and Sports College.

To try to clarify this matter and to confirm whether any further action is required we wrote to the Headteacher at the school, Mr David Hudson, and have now received a response. We reproduce the correpondence below (click images for larger versions):

We have also been contacted in relation to an alledged incident whereby a man in a van was understood to have been taking pictures of  children outside Wickersley Northfield School. This seems to have been a misunderstanding. We have spoken to the police about this and they confirmed to us that the alledged incident definitely did not take place outside Northfield School.

If residents wish to contact us in relation to either of these matters, or others, they can of course do so in the usual ways.
