Girl, 16, charged with attempted murder after stabbing”

A 16-year-old girl who was charged with attempted murder after a welfare officer was stabbed at a school has been remanded in youth custody by a district judge.

The girl, who attends the mixed-sex school, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder following the incident and remains in police custody.

The teenager, who can not be named for legal reasons, is charged with attempted murder and carrying without good reason a blade or sharply pointed article on school premises.

The teenager appeared briefly before Grimsby Youth Court and the case was sent to Hull Crown Court due to the serious nature of the offences.

Parents of pupils at Winterton Community Academy received a text message from the school to say an incident had taken place. "Children at the school have not been directly affected by this".

The stabbing is believed to have happened in the school office while children were in their classrooms ready for lessons to begin.

A 61-year-old woman, who works as a welfare officer at the school rated as "Good" in its last Ofsted inspection, was rushed to hospital with stab wounds.

But headteacher Gareth Morris reassured parents and the public in the area.

"We will support our staff directly affected and will be keeping parents updated throughout the day".

The incident comes after Spanish teacher Ann Maguire was fatally stabbed by 15-year-old Will Cornick while teaching a class at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds in 2014.

A spokesman for East Midlands Ambulance Service said: "We sent a paramedic on a vehicle and a crewed ambulance".

Chief Superintendent Christine Wilson, of Humberside Police, said: "Our inquiries are continuing and a police presence remains in the school as reassurance to pupils and staff".
