Dear Parent/Carer,

As you know there is currently a ‘clown craze’ that has come over from the U.S. There are various rumours circulating the school about this craze that are causing concern amongst students.  I can confirm that school is a completely safe place for students and there is supervision before and after school.

We have spoken to the local police who are also aware of the craze and they have assured us that any sightings or incidents will be taken very seriously by them and could even result in prosecution under the Public Order Act.

There is a new rumour that the school is on ‘lockdown’ on Friday, I can assure you that this is not the case and it will remain open as usual.

The attached information has been shared with all students today and staff will remain vigilant in their supervision of students as ever. All students know that if they are concerned they can speak to a teacher.

Thank you for your support in keeping our students calm and focussed on their learning 

Kind regards

Beth Honnor

Headteacher
