An intruder was chased off the grounds of Moriah Jewish Day School in Pinner on Tuesday.
In an email to parents, head-teacher Alan Shaw wrote: “An intruder entered the far end of the school playing field from the housing estate on our western boundary. He was spotted immediately due to our strong security procedures [CCTV, security guard, vigilant staff] and chased off the premises.”
Police and the Community Security Trust had been informed and the police were provided with “video footage both of the intruder and the car he drove off in”.
The CST’s Mark Gardner described the incident as “isolated and highly unusual.
“But the school staff reacted promptly and correctly.”
