No squirrel has ’caused havoc’ or ‘terrified’ children at Chater Infant School.

A recent article on the Watford Observer website and also in the local free paper today about a squirrel in the playground a few weeks ago may have caused you some concern this week.

We did have a curious and bold squirrel in the playground during Golden Time a few weeks ago; I would like to assure you that the children were not at risk.  If there had been a serious concern I would have written to you immediately.  The teachers and I spoke to the children in assembly about how to behave around pets and other animals.

There is no substance to this article, it is poorly written and greatly exaggerates an occurrence  in the playground . I am sorry if this has caused you any concern.
