A school has hired a security guard after a punch-up left two teachers and a student with minor injuries.
Ninestiles, an academy school in Birmingham, hired the security guard following the incident last month. Two teachers were knocked to the ground and kicked after they tried to break up a fight involving a group of people outside the school gates. A student was also left with minor injuries.
The security guard has since been stationed at the front entrance of the school. Co-head of Ninestiles Andrea Stephens told Birmingham Mail: ‘We wrote to all parents around four weeks ago to say that we had taken the initiative by arranging an additional security presence at our front entrance.
‘This followed an incident (on November 26) that involved an assault by people from outside the school.
This measure adds another layer of care and safety to the wellbeing of our students as they leave the school. ‘We are taking a tough stand on poor behaviour and will not tolerate unkind or rude behaviour from a very few students.
‘The vast majority of our students are delightful and well-behaved young people, and we know that most parents support us in our work to ensure that the highest standards of behaviour and welfare are in place.
‘The welfare of our students and our staff is a key priority and this measure provides reassurance to our school community.’
Police were called to the punch-up which broke out at 3.45pm on November 26. A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: ‘Police were called to reports of an assault at Ninestiles Academy in Hartfield Crescent, Acocks Green at around 3.45pm on Monday (26 November).
‘It is believed a fight started between a group of people at the school gates. When teachers tried to intervene, they were knocked over and kicked. ‘Two staff members and a student were left with minor injuries. No arrests were made.’
