The incident took place at Chalk Hills Academy at around 2.50pm on Tuesday, November 13, as previously reported here.

Louise Lee, principal of The Chalk Hills Academy, said: “Two boys are currently excluded from The Chalk Hills Academy while we fully investigate what happened on Tuesday afternoon.

“It will be up to the school’s governing body to decide what further action should be taken, once that investigation is concluded.

“In the meantime, we are continuing to assist the police as they look into what happened. Our academy and trust has a zero tolerance approach to violent behaviour of any kind.”

Bedfordshire Police confirmed the pair had been bailed following their arrest on Tuesday.
