In it, the deputy headteacher Bethan Arthur described how the school had received a report the previous evening, Tuesday, June 4, of a man exposing himself in Meersbrook Park.

“We wanted to inform parents and carers so that you can encourage your child to be extra careful when walking through/playing in the park,” she wrote.

“In school, we will reinforce the message about stranger danger with classes before the end of the day.”

The Star has contacted South Yorkshire Police to find out more details about the incident, including whether anyone has been arrested. The force has yet to respond.

Last week, The Star shared a police appeal for information after a man was allegedly seen committing a lewd act at Shirebrook Valley Nature Reserve, near to to the Woodhouse and Beighton areas of Sheffield.
