Row over fate of pupil who took blade to Long Stratton High School …

Row over fate of pupil who took blade to Long Stratton High School in resolved 07:00 12 March 2016 Martin George 1 Long Stratton High School. Photo: Nick Butcher EDP pics 2007 A row which pitted high school staff against governors over the future of a boy who brought a blade into school has been resolved. Share link shares Staff at Long Stratton High School had considered industrial action after governors overturned the headteacher s decision to expel the pupil.

The EDP understands that the boy was found with what police described as a bladed article in a hollowed-out book on the school s premises in November. Headteacher John Wilson permanently excluded him, but the school s governors reversed this decision. Police later handed him a youth conditional caution.

In December, staff at the school, supported by the NUT, NASUWT, ATL and Unison unions, wrote a letter to governors complaining about their decision. It said: Our primary concern is how a team of governors with little teaching experience can overrule the entire senior leadership team of the school. Earlier this term, unions started a formal consultation with their members over possible industrial action over the boy remaining at the high school.

However, it has now emerged the dispute has been resolved, and the threat of action lifted, after the boy left the school, and moved to another. In a statement, Long Stratton High School said: We are pleased that the issue has now been resolved. The whole school community has worked together to reach a resolution and the pupil is now being taught at another school.

The safety and wellbeing of our pupils has always been our top priority and will continue to be so. Everyone wants to move on from the unfortunate situation which has taken place and focus on providing a positive learning environment for our pupils. Scott Lyons, joint division secretary for Norfolk NUT, said: I hope that governors in the future will take seriously teachers and parents views on knives in school.

I think governors have got to communicate closely with teachers and get their opinions on something as non-negotiable as knives in school.

Attacker is jailed for 10 years for 'frenzied' stabbing in Great Yarmouth

14:26 10 March 2016 Peter Walsh 1 Carl Atkins, of Maureen Close in Coventry, was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. Picture: Norfolk Police Archant A man who stabbed another man at least eight times in a frenzied knife attack in his own home has been jailed. Carl Atkins, 27, knocked at the door of the victim s Great Yarmouth home armed with a knife and demanded, give me your weed .

With the knife held at chest height he entered the property and stabbed the victim at least eight times, in the chest and back, as he grappled with the complainant. The attack stopped after the victim choked and Atkins, who appeared worried about him, left the property. Atkins appeared at Norwich Crown Court yesterday to be sentenced after having previously been found guilty of wounding with intent following a trial in October last year.

Following the frenzied attack in August 2014 the victim was taken to hospital so his injuries, which included four stab wounds to his stomach, as well as stab wounds to his back and a cut to his mouth where the blade was held at one point during the incident. The court heard the attack has had a profound affect on the victim who has had to have his medication altered to sort out his anxiety and to help him sleep. Sentencing Atkins to 10 years in prison Judge Katharine Moore described it as an extremely serious offence and said it was only by good fortune there was no really serious injury .

William Beardmore, for Atkins, of Coventry, West Midlands, said the attack was frenzied but not repeated and lasted only for less than a minute. He said it was far from the worst example of a wounding case and insisted it was not a serious injury in the context of the offence. He said Atkins had suffered from the effects of a hammer attack on him in 2012 after which he spent a number of days in an induced coma.

Mr Beardmore said he has suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression following the attack. He said he had shunned medical intervention but was now undergoing cognitive behavioural therapy for the affects of the incident on him. Have you got a crime story?
