  • Stranger Alert - Advice on how to be safe.

    Published 22/03/17

    Advice for Students and Parents.

    Safety advice for Students - How to be safe. 

    Please would you take a few minutes to read this very important advice. 

    • Where possible students should walk home with someone else.
    • If approached by someone in a vehicle, e.g to ask directions, they should stay well back from the vehicle. 
    • There is absolutely no requirement to speak to anyone in a car or otherwise if they do not want to.
    • If sensing any danger students should always run and find help rather than wait to see what happens. 
    • Going into a nearby shop, cafe, even an office block to ask for help are all acceptable ways to avoid danger if they are ever spooked by the behaviour of a motorist or passer by. 

    Of course such instances are rare but they do happen occasionally, and it’s important to look after ourselves and each other, by being alert to risks and knowing how we might handle them if they were to arise.
