A Response to yesterday's incident in the local area.

I am writing to you after the events of yesterday within our local community.

We realise that a large number of families have been impacted by these events, and we hold all those involved in our prayers.

We held an early staff briefing this morning where we put a plan together to support our children, we followed this up with an assembly focused on worries.

We realise that a large number of parents will have made the decision not to share the events with their children and we respect that which is why we focused on worries and not the detail of what has happened.

We have asked Key stage 2 children not to share details, however, if any of the older children who were walking home have witnessed these events, we ask them to come forward and we will direct them to professional support.

If you feel your child has been affected by the events of yesterday, we would ask you to get in touch with the school office.

Thinking of every one of you in our community at this sad time,

God Bless, Carmel Dodds Headteacher
