Armed police were called to Cleeve School in Gloucestershire after "threats" were made by pupil on social media. It happened yesterday, Wednesday 17 May.
The school has issued a statement about the incident.
To make you aware that the police responded yesterday (Wednesday 17th May) to a concern we had about a student who had made threats against the school on social media.
There is nothing to suggest that these threats carried any substance, however we are taking the matter very seriously. We have discussed with the police a plan we have in place to manage this particular student, and they are happy with what has been proposed.
We feel that there is no risk to any student or adult across the school site but we will, with the police, monitor the situation very carefully.
Gloucestershire Police, who were called out to the school, had this to say:
Officers attended the school yesterday as a precaution after staff raised concerns about a pupil who had made a threat on social media.
The safety of everyone involved is our primary concern and we are satisfied with how the situation has been managed by the school and the plan they have in place.
The matter will now be reviewed at a joint agency meeting to ensure all necessary further support is in place.
