Notification to schools - Pupil safety

Please could you notify all parents that yesterday, at the vicarage garden at Michael’s Church, Barnes, there was an attempted abduction of a child. The child concerned managed to escape and was unharmed, though very frightened. The police were involved, but unfortunately the person got away and there was not a clear sighting of him (the child was pulled from behind). Please remind all parents to exercise increased vigilance with regards to the whereabouts of their children following this incident.
