In response to an incident in school this morning, please can we reassure parent/carers that students and staff are safe.  There was an anonymous phone call to the school which lead to us going into lock-down and contacting the police.  Following a thorough search of the school and, in consultation with the police, the school was reopened and is now functioning as normal.
