Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page - By Ai­dan Bar­low

Paramedics were called to a sec­ondary school af­ter a care­taker started “be­hav­ing er­rat­i­cally” in front of shocked pupils.

Staff at The Nor­ton Knatch­bull School in Hythe Road called for an am­bu­lance af­ter the in­ci­dent last Fri­day lunchtime.

Re­ports from par­ents that the in­ci­dent in­volved a knife was in­volved have not been con­firmed.

The staff mem­ber was said to be dis­man­tling fur­ni­ture when the “sud­den and un­ex­pected” out­burst hap­pened.

In an email to par­ents and car­ers, head teacher Su­sanne Staab said the in­ci­dent was han­dled “swiftly” and safely by lunchtime duty staff.

Her mes­sage added: “A mem­ber of our staff was sud­denly and un­ex­pect­edly taken very poorly and started to be­have er­rat­i­cally. Please be as­sured that the school will take ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tion to fol­low up with in­ci­dent.”
