A parent had passed this man as she was coming to school to collect her child.  She noticed him particularly because of how slowly he was walking and because he was constantly looking around.  She saw that he had walked towards the school gate but didn’t come on to the school site.  After she had collected her child, she noticed that he was still waiting outside the gates.  She walked past him and started to walk back in the direction of her home.  She stopped and pretended to check something so that she could see what he was doing without making it obvious.  He had also started walking in the same direction as her and again was walking slowly but she saw that he didn’t have any children with him which made her suspicious.  He also crossed over Heath Road by the post office after she had done the same.  She then started to worry that he might be following her so she waited on the small green just on the corner of Heath Road and Central Avenue for a short while to see what his movements were.  She then saw that he was loitering by the bus stop so she quickly walked home and phoned the school to inform us.
