Pastures Hill Incident - Friday 3rd March 2017

Posted 21st March 2017

All pupils should have received a letter regarding the Incident on Pastures Hill on Friday 3rd March.

If you think you have missed out on the letter, you can read it below, or download a copy from the Letters Home page.

Incident on Pastures Hill Friday 3rd March 2017

Most of you will be aware of a serious incident which occurred on the date above. Mr. J. Wilding, Deputy Headteacher, was physically assaulted whilst trying to protect our pupils from 4 youths he believed were intending to commit a physical attack. I would like to pay tribute to Mr. Wilding’s brave and selfless actions in the cause of the safety of your children.

Since the incident, several pupils and parents have given us names of those who may be responsible, and we believe that these names are widely known in the community. We have passed this information on to the Police. Unfortunately, as of now, few people have actually come forward to the Police giving any identification or other information about the suspects.

I am sure you would agree that the person responsible for this assault, and their accomplices, should be caught, and dealt with for their actions. As the situation stands, there is a significant chance that this may not happen, due to the lack of information Police have so far received. As well as providing some justice for the victim, I believe strong action is necessary so that my staff and your children are protected from those in our community who appear intent on committing acts of violence.

I ask all those with information to consider your duty in this matter and to protect the school community from danger. I ask you to speak to the Police without delay by contacting 101.

If you do not want to speak directly to the Police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers. When you contact them you won't be identified; the only person who knows you contacted Crimestoppers with information is you.

You can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or on-line at https://crimestoppers-uk.org/give-information/give-information-online/

Yours sincerely,

Mr A. Venkatesh

Headteacher
