Safety Information for Parents

20th January 2011

Dear Parent

I have been asked by the Police to advise parents to discourage their children from using paths running through fields around school on their journey home from school. The areas the Police particularly have in mind are:

  • The fields adjacent to Wooldale Road from the school gates towards Newport Pagnell Road
  • The field to the west of the Quinton Road which has several pathways leading to Grange Park

I would emphasise that there has been no specific incident involving Caroline Chisholm students. However, a possible risk from an older person has been reported to the Police and the particular area of concern relates to children walking home through these quiet areas at 3.30 – 5.00 pm.

As usual, the advice to all our young people is to stick to well-lit areas and to remain in groups when they walk home from school. If parents become aware of any specific incidents that they find suspicious please contact the Police with your concerns. Dialling 101 is the new method for contacting your local Police Station.

Yours sincerely


Tony Downing
