Student Working

Please be vigilant

May 14, 2019

We urge students to remain vigilant on their journey to and from school and, where possible, to remain in groups, following two recent incidents in the local area, whereby young people have been approached by a male.

Students are advised that if they are approached, they should go to a safe place and call the Police on 999.

Here are a few tips to stay safe

  • Never accept gifts or sweets from a stranger
  • Never accept a lift in a car from a stranger
  • Never go anywhere with a stranger
  • Never go off on your own without telling a parent or trusted adult
  • Never go up to a car to give directions – keep away so that no one can get hold of you and you can run away
  • Always tell a trusted adult if you have been approached by a stranger
  • Remember the Yell, Run, Tell rule – it’s okay to run and scream if you find yourself in danger. Get away from the source of danger as fast as you can.
  • If you find yourself in danger always run towards shops or other busy places with lots of people. If you see a policeman or person wearing in uniform, they will be able to help you.
  • If you think that you are being followed, go into a shop or knock on the door of a house and ask for help
  • Never play in dark or lonely places
  • Stay with your group of friends – never wander off on your own
  • Never agree to do a job for someone you don’t know in return for money – they may be trying to trick you
  • Make sure your parents know where you are going and when you will be back. If your plans change be sure to tell your parents.
