The letter claims that the incidents have been reported to the police and officers are working with local schools.

It is not stated in the letter whether the three victims all attend All Saints Catholic High School, but Intervention Manager, Mr Stokes, wrote: “As we start the new academic year and look forward to working with your children, it is timely that we remind you to talk to your children about keeping safe and being vigilant on their way to and from school.

“As part of our safeguarding duty, we do however need to inform you that over the last two weeks there have been three incidents where people have been assaulted in the area.

“We do not want to cause alarm but feel it is our duty to inform you as parents that these incidents have happened and also to let you know that the police are aware and are working closely with local schools, passing on any information that we need to know.”
