Police were called to a primary school in Northumberland yesterday after two pupils were found with cannabis in the playground.
Staff at Bedlington Station Primary called in the police and officers took possesion of the Class B drug. They then spoke to the Year 4 pupils - both aged around 8.
The police say no further action will be taken. The school's head says parents should be assured that they have robust policies for incidents like this.
Head teacher, Carl Sutherland, said:
This year over 93 per cent of parents or carers of primary age children secured their first school preference in North Yorkshire.
This figure is very close to last year’s figure of 94 per cent and a higher figure than many other places in the country. 97 per cent of families in the county secured one of their top three preferences.

That's according to a survey which suggests that many schools can no longer afford to run 'breakfast clubs.'
The clubs give children food if their parents can't afford to provide it.
A new survey claims that an important service, which offers free breakfasts for school-children, is in rapid decline.
'Breakfast Clubs' give youngsters food, if their parents can't afford to. Schools have to fund it themselves but many are struggling to raise the cash.
