Schoolchildren from Bromfords School and Sixth Form College in Wickford were spotted throwing litter over a bridge while bullying a child who was self harming in the River Crouch. When members of the public tried to intervene they were then threatened by the students.Charming!
In a message from Bromfords, seen by the Echo, a spokesman from the school apologised for the behaviour of the students and confirmed the injured pupil’s school and police had been informed.Wow! That's certainly different from the usual 'not in school, so not our concern' attitude.
The incident took place on February 7 but Essex Police could not provide any details about what has happened since the incident.*rolls eyes*
A statement from Deputy headteacher John Edwards, given to the eyewitness, stated: “I am sorry if the behaviour of a small number of our students has fallen short.
“It is very disappointing for me to hear that any of our students are behaving in such a manner, bringing our school into disrepute.
“The action of these few individuals is not indicative of the behaviour of the overwhelming majority of our outstanding students.
“I sincerely apologise you were witness to such behaviour and can assure you that we will be addressing within out assemblies.”Gold star for that man!
