Their father was walking behind them & so was able to see what was going on. The incident happened near Holmwood Gardens cut-through in Formby. The police have been informed."


Here is the letter sent from Formby High School to parents earlier today...


Dear Parent

One of our students was approached in Formby this morning and asked if she needed a lift. Whilst this may be completely innocent, we would encourage you to have a discussion with your son / daughter over the weekend, reminding them how to keep safe whilst walking to and from school. We will also share this information with the students today.


Please reinforce to your child the following safeguarding guidance for students when walking to and from school.


Our guidance for staying safe is identified below:

  • Where possible students to remain in groups of two or more and keep to main, well lit, roads and pathways when walking to and from school.

  • If approached by a stranger, never divulge any personal information; this includes times and places that you may frequent or names of friends who you are going to meet.

  • If approached by a stranger, never get in their car.

  • If approached by a stranger, make contact with the nearest point of safety; this could be a shop, a school crossing patrol, a parent or indeed the school itself.

  • If approached by a stranger, please inform the Police as soon as possible. This will allow for an increased chance of locating the person who may still be in the area.

  • Use your mobile phone to contact home, school or the Police.

  • If necessary, return to school by the closest entrance.
