Parents in Stretton have been warned following reports of a man acting suspiciously near children walking to and from school.
It is alleged that parents witnessed a man watching the children as they went to and from the school in the morning on Wednesday, September 13, and again as they returned home in the afternoon on Thursday, September 14.
Concerned parents contacted staff at the William Shrewsbury Primary School in Church Road, who called the police to report the incidents.
Officers from Staffordshire Police have confirmed that they had spoken to a man in the area about the allegations, but no arrests have been made.
A spokesman said: "We did have a couple of reports about the incident. Officers have been round and spoken to a man in the area.
"He has denied the allegations, but we have warned him and given him advice. We will be sending more PCSOs to the area at the time of the school run. There's not a lot more we can do for now, but we are aware of it."
Parents have been urged to walk with their children to and from school and to keep an eye out for anything they think could be suspicious.
Headteacher of the school, Bernadette Hunter, said: "Parents alerted us to a safeguarding concern. The safety of our children is, of course, of paramount importance. We are acting promptly on this and it was reported to the police straight away.
"I met with two police PCSOs in the area this morning, Friday, September 15, and I'm reassured that the police are acting on these reports.
"The police have asked us to warn parents and tell them to download the Staffordshire Smart Alert app to keep on top of any updates. They have also reassured us that they will be about in the area next week."
