Police called to school

SCHOOL bosses have warned that they will not tolerate bad behaviour after police were called into a classroom.

Officers arrived at High Tunstall College of Science, in Elwick Road, Hartlepool, after staff became concerned about “verbal threats” being made by a pupil.

The incident was said to be over quickly and no crime was recorded or injuries reported.

A statement by the school said teachers “do not tolerate unruly behaviour” and school staff are now dealing with the matter, which took place at around 2pm on Thursday, September 15.

A school spokesman said: “The police were called to the college on September 15 after verbal threats were made by a student in the classroom.

“No-one was injured and the matter is being dealt with internally. The police are not taking any action.

“The college expects the highest possible standards from all its students and we do not tolerate unruly behaviour.”

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman added: “Police were called to a college in Hartlepool following reports of concerns surrounding a pupil’s unruly behaviour.

“The matter is being dealt with internally by the college after officers deemed that no criminal offences had taken place.”
