Please see safeguarding alert from St Michaels HS
I was advised to contact you following a report from one of our parents. A pupil of ours in Year 10 believes he may have been followed while making his way home on Wednesday.
The report was that our pupil was walking between Water Street and Lydiate Lane in Thornton and was approached by an adult male asking for spare change. Our pupil said he didn't have any and continued walking. When he has looked behind him the man has still been walking behind. Our pupil has picked up his speed and eventually ran away. He believes the adult male began walking faster but did not run. Our pupil has said he may have been being 'paranoid' about this.
As Holy Family is the nearest school to this incident I have alerted them to this and have advised our pupil's parents to contact the non-emergency police number.
