    Recently a pupil at my school, aged 12 got into a fight with her peer (also aged 12)
    The pupil she hit is in hospital and reportedly (through gossip) has a fractured skull and is deaf in one ear. She is not currently in school and we think she is permenantly excluded. Would this be the suitable punishment? Would she go to jail (can she?) or to young offenders?

    Please respond I need the answers QUICK!

    This is not something you should be gossiping about especially when you don't know the facts.

    You could get in trouble for spreading rumours ...

    If a girl did indeed end up with a fractured skull and deaf in one ear then I think it would go further than just being excluded from school.

    police would have likely been involved, and possibly charges made.

    hard to say if she'd end up in young offenders or not without knowing the girls record or how the fight started etc

    you shouldn't just believe the gossip though. Good chance it's not even true and just chinese whispers that got out of hand

    Good god, what sort of ghetto school is this?

    The child is over the age of criminal responsibility, so it's quite possible that the police could take action against her if it is felt that a prosecution is an appropriate response. She sounds like a nasty little thug from your description of the incident.

    Wow - a catholic independent day school and one of the 12-year-old pupils beats another so badly in a fight that she ends up in hospital with a fractured skull and hearing loss... Bet they don't put that in the prospectus.

    Is it to do with cheating? I don't get why some girls fight the girl he cheated on. Confront the guy instead.

    It was about cheating and the police were called and we had an assembly it was very serious.

    All depends on whether it was self-defence or not

    but still, she'll likely be punished for it as she did some serious damage

    most likely young offenders

    how on earth does a little 12 year old girl inflict such injuries?

    Is she built like Mike Tyson or something


    Spoiler:
    Show

    and if the other girl has injuries that would require such a long hospital stay then I would not be surprised if the girl who did it got charged with GBH. I mean if I was a parent and my kid ended up hospitalized I'd certainly be looking to pressing charges. This isn't just a simple black eye

      Yes that is the rumour. We think she has a head injury and that is why the teachers were lifting her legs up and wrapping her in foil. Thought she was dead

      She'll just be put on young offenders and maybe a criminal record only because shes not even a teenager yet.And yeah she would get permanently excluded
