Important Notice from Leicester Grammar School

Important Notice from Leicester Grammar School

Posted: Thu, 28 Sep 2023 09:03 by Joanne Adkins

We have received reports of a white male, aged late 20s/early 30s, medium height and described as wearing a grey hoodie and tracksuit bottoms or a black baseball cap and large black rucksack, acting strangely and seen on the London Road in the vicinity of school. We also understand that he has followed a St Cuthbert's Primary School pupil as they walked to school. Both we and St Cuthbert's have alerted the police, who have been out to investigate. More »

Please be reassured that we take the safety of our pupils very seriously on site and that children are always supervised when playing outside the building. We also have grounds and site staff who maintain the security of outside areas, and a security guard after school. A member of site services is present at the foot of the drive before and after school. The pupils themselves are advised to be vigilant and to report any adult over whom they have concerns; all visitors must sign in at Reception and are given a visitor's lanyard.

If you see anyone acting suspiciously in the vicinity of the school, please report this immediately to Reception or call the police directly if you have immediate concerns. We will be asking class teachers and form tutors to offer reassurance, whilst also reminding their charges to be cautious around strangers and to look after their personal safety.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Best wishes,
John Watson
Headmaster and Principal of Leicester Grammar School Trust » Less

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Your help is required for Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development - public engagement on draft networks - Leicestershire County Council

Continuing with the programme of work to inform the County Council's approach to providing enhanced cycling and walking facilities in the County, public engagement launches this week asking for people's views on draft priority cycling and walking networks. These have been produced as part of the ongoing development of the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs) for the Market Harborough area that includes Foxton and Great Bowden. More »

As many people as possible are encouraged to have their say on the draft plans by accessing the online map-based engagement here: https://haveyoursay.leicestershire.gov.uk/leicestershire-cycling-and-walking-infrastructure-plans-round-3

The engagement runs for 4 weeks from Tuesday 26th September to Tuesday 24th October. Responses will be considered alongside early feedback already received from local councillors, to help inform the final priority cycling and walking routes to be included in the LCWIP for this area.

LCWIPs set out the vision and key priorities for infrastructure improvements in each of the areas, to create attractive, joined-up priority cycling and walking networks, encouraging, and enabling people to travel more sustainably. LCWIPs are also key plans in helping us to secure funding to deliver these improvements to cycling and walking routes, including via Government bidding opportunities and from developers.

It is currently anticipated that this LCWIP will be finalised and presented to the County Council Cabinet for approval in Autumn 2024. » Less
