Headteacher pays tribute to 15-year-old girl found dead in a Gloucestershire park
The schoolgirl, named locally as Jasmine Clarkson, was found dead by paramedics after members of the public called police
A 15-year-old schoolgirl was found dead in a Gloucestershire park at around 12.30pm on Thursday.
Police were called to St Michael's Park in Cirencester after concerns were raised for the girl's welfare. Paramedics attended, along with officers from Gloucestershire Police, but the girl was pronounced dead at the scene.
She has not been named by the force, but is said to be Jasmine Clarkson, a pupil at Cirencester Kingshill School.
Christine Oates, head teacher at the school said: “Jasmine was a lovely girl who was well liked by her friends.
“She was hard working and had a good relationship with her teachers. The whole school community is upset by the news. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this sad time.
“The school is currently considering the best way to pay their respects to Jasmine and this will be discussed with Jasmine's family, the pupils and staff.
“Pupils are all being given the support they need at this difficult time for everyone at the school.”
A spokesman for Gloucestershire Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious.
“Shortly before 12.30pm on Thursday November 7 Gloucestershire Police responded to concern for the welfare of a girl in St Michael's Park on Watermoor Road in Cirencester,” the spokesperson said.
“The Ambulance Service was in attendance but the girl, believed to be a 15-year-old, was pronounced dead at the scene.”
