As you may already be aware there was a serious incident involving one of our pupils on their way home from school yesterday. We are unable to give any details except to say that we are doing everything we can to support the police with their investigations. The police statement can be found here.
At this very difficult time our thoughts are with the family and we will be supporting our pupils and staff in school today and over the coming days.
The incident did not happen on the school grounds and we are immensely proud of our pupils who were near the scene and helped the pupil back onto the school site, where members of staff on duty were able to administer the care they needed. We are also thankful to all of the emergency service teams who responded exceptionally quickly and have provided outstanding care for our pupil.
Our priority over the coming days will be to ensure that our Hastings family feel supported and safe.
Miss Bradley and Mr Shipman
