Update on an incident at a Huddersfield school

Kirklees Council update on incident at a Huddersfield school

Yesterday a video went viral showing an incident at a school in Huddersfield.

We know that this story has caused a lot of upset and so whilst we cannot say much at this time, we have a brief update:

  • West Yorkshire Police have just confirmed that a 16 year old boy is due to appear in a Youth Court. Read their full statement here
  • The school has issued a letter to parents, which is available to read on their website
  • Because this is a live police investigation we cannot comment on the case or give any further details
  • We would advise not to share the video on websites or social media sites as it could prejudice future criminal proceedings

We understand that people have more concerns about this and whilst we are not able to share details of the victim and his family’s personal circumstances, we would like to reassure everyone that we do not tolerate behaviour like this and reports are taken seriously.
