The latest and well-publicised ‘killer clown’ craze that originated in the US is now sweeping across many parts of Europe, including England and Wales.

Children travelling to and from school are a target for the perpetrators of the craze. At these times in particular, children are at greater risk and require the protection of the school, where this is practicable to do so.
