School `attack' girl in talks.

Alleged victim teacher Linda Wright

EDUCATION officials are to meet a girl's family after an alleged assault at a Huddersfield school.

The 11-year-old youngster was given a formal police reprimand after being arrested following the incident at Colne Valley High School.

Her family have complained to the school and to Kirklees Council over the way she was treated.

Police held the girl for more than six hours on Tuesday after it was alleged she assaulted headteacher Linda Wright and caused damage in a classroom.

But her mother claims the girl, who suffers from the disorder attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD ) which causes behavioural problems, should have been helped not arrested.

The girl has not returned to school. A council spokesman said: "We will be holding talks with the school and with the family to decide the next step".
