Pupils have been put on alert after a schoolboy was followed by a van driver after he got off a bus in Whitstable.
The pupil from Canterbury's Archbishop's School was beckoned over by a man in a Transit van in Clover Rise, near the Old Thanet Way.
When he ignored him and walked off, the motorist followed him - crawling behind him down the road.
Now the Archbishop's School, which is in the St Stephen's area of Canterbury, has sent a note to both pupils and parents.
Deputy head teacher Gavin Kennett said: "On Friday of last week one of our pupils who caught the 914 bus got off at Clover Rise and a man in a Transit van beckoned the pupil over.
"You should do exactly as this pupil did and ensure that the police are told as soon as possible..." - deputy head teacher Gavin Kennett
"The pupil sensibly ignored the man and walked home. The person in the van did, however, follow the pupil some of the way. The police are aware and are looking into this.
"In the unlikely event of anything similar happening to you on your way home you should do exactly as this pupil did and ensure that the police are told as soon as possible."
