Pattyson and his partner were called to collect the student due to behavioural problems.And they apologised to the headmaster and took their errant child home for a stern talking to, yes?
Shaun Pattyson, 27, knocked victim Robert Swindells to the ground at Chesterton Community Sports College before the prosecution allege he punched and kicked him.
Magistrates adjourned the case and next month Pattyson will learn his fate at North Staffordshire Justice Centre.
It shouldn't take them long...
Emma Thompson, prosecuting, said the headteacher had worked at the school for 25 years and has been head for ten years, StokeonTrentLive reports. She said Chesterton Community Sports College had been experiencing issues with the girl for some time, including swearing at teachers.
The student's parents were called in on May 9. Miss Thompson added: "The headteacher had a conversation with the child's mum on the phone and she said she would come immediately to collect the child. The child went to the front entrance and began being rude. Within ten minutes the child's parents arrived.
"The mother approached the front entrance and shouted at the child to get a phone. The child went to collect the phone.
"The defendant appeared and squared up to the headteacher. The headteacher could not remember what he said to him but the defendant was swearing at him before head-butting him. It connected with the right side of his face just below his right eye. He immediately fell to the floor as a result of the headbutt. He felt the defendant kicked and punched him for approximately ten seconds."
The defendant made full admissions when interviewed by police. Miss Thompson said: "He said he headbutted the headteacher. He was shown the CCTV and admitted it was him head-butting, punching and kicking the victim. He said he believed the headteacher was a bully and that is why he assaulted him."
Open and shut, surely?
Pattyson, of Brewester Road, Bucknall, admitted common assault. Representing himself, the defendant said: "I'll admit to head-butting him because I did. I admit to punching him. I did not kick him. If this is on CCTV, show it to prove I did not kick him."
Might as well take the kid out of school, anything bred by these two isn't going to learn anything anyway...
