Al­leged in­ci­dent at Spit­tal PS

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Po­lice were called to a Ruther­glen Pri­mary School this month af­ter a child al­legedly lashed out at a teacher.

An anony­mous par­ent of a child at­tend­ing Spit­tal Pri­mary told the Re­former he was alarmed to see a po­lice pres­ence at the school gates.

Des Dickson, head of education for Cam­bus­lang, Ruther­glen and East Kil­bride, would not re­veal the ex­act de­tails of the in­ci­dent, but said: “An in­ci­dent took place at the end of the school day which re­quired the in­ter­ven­tion of staff with sup­port from po­lice. No other chil­dren were in­volved or at any risk at any time. The head teacher and staff re­sponded quickly and pro­fes­sion­ally to calm the sit­u­a­tion. Spit­tal Pri­mary School through the work of the head teacher and staff has cre­ated a strong car­ing ethos for all of its pupils.”
