School statement in response to traffic incident on Monday 15th June

Dear Parent/ Carer


You may have seen some recent media coverage about an incident outside our school on Monday involving a car and pedestrian.

I would like to reassure you that this incident is being taken seriously but it would be inappropriate for me to go into detail as the Police investigation is ongoing.

I am sure you would agree that the safety of our pupils is our highest priority and for this reason I would ask you to ensure that if you are dropping your child off by car that you park responsibly so that all our children can walk safely to school.

Anyone who has witnessed the incident, or who has information which can help the Police with their enquiries and has not done so already, is asked to contact Sgt Mark Pickavance at Portobello Police Station directly.


Yours sincerely


Barbara A Service
