The 14-year-old victim was talking to friends at Knox Academy in Haddington, East Lothian, when she was struck and had her head repeatedly banged against lockers.

Police are investigating the Monday, August 28 proceeding.

The teenage victim’s parents claim they were told by the private school that the male pupil who carried out the school attack had “anger results” and there was nothing they could do.

The girl, who cannot be named for licit reasons, said: “I was chatting to other pupils and was punched then spanked on the face, my head was banged from locker to locker and I slumped to the lowest level. I can’t remember much from this point on. I was checked over at seminary and put into a wheelchair as I was very unsteady on my feet.”

She said: “The way the school has dealt with it has been startling. They’re full of promises to sort the bullying out and deal with the stems for me. It never helps. The thing that has appalled and hurt me is where is the shore up of the school?”
