Mum fears for safety of beaten son

Social Share

THE MOTHER OF an eight-year-old pupil of a St James school has expressed concern about his safety after she noticed that his lip was burst and swollen when she picked him up after school on Monday.

The young mother, who asked that her name and that of her son be withheld, told the MIDWEEK NATION he had been cuffed in his mouth by another boy.

She acknowledged he had several “run-ins” at the school and had been in trouble before. She claimed the treatment was different when he was the victim.

As an example, she said that when her son had a previous scrap with the same pupil allegedly involved in Monday’s incident, she was called to the school and had to replace his (the other boy’s) games clothes.  (LK)
