I am a new governor at a secondary school. We have recently had a incident were a boy attacked
another boy outside the school gates with a roll of one pound coins wrapped up in cling film ,he
also attempted to ram his head into the wall.

Thankfully a parent and other children intervened before to much damage was caused , but it could
have been much worse.

The deputy head who is responsible for school discipline ,does not want to do anything as he says it
was outside the schools gates. However my daughter has said the inc indent happened because the boy
who was attacked, stood up in school and told the teachears that a friend of the assailant had
attacked another child. It clearly is a revenge attacked on the boy who showed some guts in the
first place.

The parents of the boy attacked are no fools and have made it clear that they will start legal
action if the school does nothing. They are waiting for us to do something.

What worries me most however is that four teachers have taken me aside and said that something must
be done about the assailant as they are horrified by the vicious attack.

Is the deputy write to wash his hands off it ? Any advice on legal points or in general .

TIA

Sorry if anyone regards this as being posted in the wrong group

My vote would go along the 1) School should indeed do something and 2) So should the police........
route. If it was a revenge attack....that's the way I'd go.

The schools authority ceases outside of school property.

Pupils who wish to tell teachers anything which could be seen as potential for retribution should be
encouraged to do so in private, inbetween periods. Never in a lesson or in view of the rest of the
school. Teachers ought not to ask pupils for information publicly for this reason.

In this case I would recommend the parent be encouraged to report the matter to the police in the
first instance. There is no other sensible solution. This *is* assault causing grevous bodily harm
with a weapon.

It is beyond the scope of the Governors and the Deputy Head's authority!!

If the parents refuse to notify the police then the school ought to, in the capacity of witness.

Oh one other thing - ignore Ace it is a well known and particularly nasty troll.
