I am aware of a number of rumours circulating social media and the local community regarding the emergency services being called to the school on Friday.

I would therefore like to allay some of the concerns that have been raised.

On Friday, there was an altercation between two pupils.  During the altercation a pupil sustained an injury.  The injury required medical attention and an ambulance was called.  The school is fully cooperating with the Police, so until that investigation has been concluded we will be unable to comment further.

The incident was managed swiftly and I would like to thank all involved for their professionalism.

Mr Smith
