Teachers watch as boy was attacked and left in class bloody

A distraught mother said her 12-year-old son returned from school “covered in blood” after a shocking attack in the classroom that was caught on camera.

The ‘disturbing’ incident took place in February during a 7th grade class at St Nicholas’ Academy in Garston, but the videos have only recently surfaced on social media. The shocking clip shows a male student standing over another male student’s desk, before launching a violent attack, inflicting numerous blows to his head and body.

The video appears to show two adult staff members standing and sitting close to the incident as it takes place, without intervening during the portion of the attack caught on camera. The school’s principal said the ‘troubling’ incident was ‘handled immediately and appropriately’, resulting in the suspension of a student. The school said this was followed by an appropriate reintegration plan and internal investigation.
