:01:00.:01:04.

and have been left shocked by the discovery of a knife in thehr

children's school. None of the parents were told. I am fuming about

:01:08.:01:14.

it now. It is not very good. I have got to fetch my children now, from

:01:15.:01:19.

this dangerous school! You should be able to take children to school and

:01:20.:01:24.

know they will be safe. It is very concerning that it can be

It is very concerning that ht can be a ten`year`old by and it is getting

In Arnold, the police will finish their enquiries by the end of the

week, and the school governors will decide if the boys should bd

:01:59.:02:00.

decide if the boys should be permanently excluded.

:02:01.:02:05.

`` the boy. Well, a little earlier the police

:02:06.:02:08.

inspector responsible for the area spoke to Quentin Rayner.

:02:09.:02:11.

Whenever there is an incident like this in the school, then obviously

:02:12.:02:14.

will be concerns. But it is very rare that anything like this

:02:15.:02:21.

happens. And I think the fact it's so newsworthy is the fact that it is

:02:22.:02:25.

rare. It's an isolated case, and I think that it's something pdople

:02:26.:02:29.

need to be aware of, but I don't think it's something parents need to

:02:30.:02:32.

be concerned sending their children to school with. You and your team go

:02:33.:02:36.

into schools, you talk to both pupils and also staff. What do you

dangers. The dangers in terms of becoming a victim, and also the

:02:44.:02:46.

knock`on offences of the actions. And the fact that people, if they

:02:47.:02:50.

start taking weapons in, they can become a victim. Inevitably parents

:02:51.:02:51.

are going to ask, how safe `re become a victim. Inevitably parents

:02:52.:02:53.

are going to ask, how safe are our are going to ask, how safe `re our

:02:54.:02:55.

kids in our schools? How do you respond to that? The pupils are as

:02:56.:02:59.

safe as they can be. All thd schools have their safeguards and their

:03:00.:03:01.

protection policies in placd, which protection policies in place, which

:03:02.:03:04.

they abide with. And it's by making sure that we keep a vigilant view of

:03:05.:03:08.

what's going on that we can make sure things like this don't happen

again. I can fully understand that parents will be concerned about

:03:12.:03:15.

what's gone on, it is a serhous incident as far as bringing a knife

:03:16.:03:18.

into school. But I reassure them that all the procedures are in place

:03:19.:03:22.

to deal with this, and the school's taken really positive action as will

Nottinghamshire Police regarding it. And what happens now, in terms of
