Beaverwood School alleged chemical attack leads to teens arrested over 'prohibited weapon'

News Shopper: Two girls have been arrested and bailed by police in connection with the alleged attack Two girls have been arrested and bailed by police in connection with the alleged attack

Two girls have been arrested on suspicion of possessing a prohibited weapon following an alleged attack at a Chislehurst school yesterday (March 11).

Bromley police have said two females, aged 13 and 14, have been bailed until April 25 following an incident at Beaverwood School in Beaverwood Road. 

News Shopper received a report yesterday afternoon claiming nine girls were sprayed in the face with a chemical substance in the playground at around 11am - and it was said the girls had been targeted by a fellow pupil.

Robbie Nicolson, 43, is the uncle of one of the alleged victims. 

He told News Shopper: "The girls were in the school playground and one girl has gone round spraying nine other girls in the face.

"When my niece's mum found out she went straight down there.

"There was skin peeling off her face. She was taken to Queen Mary's Hospital."

A police spokesman confirmed attending the scene and that medical attention was required. 

Beaverwood School headteacher Karen Raven said: "Beaverwood School For Girls is proud of the calm and sensible way in which yesterday’s isolated incident was dealt with by students and staff. 

"It is business as usual for the school community as exams are underway.

"At break time, a teenager randomly sprayed a can, the contents of which accidently caught some of her friends. 

"Only one student was treated in hospital.  No other students were involved. 

"The school continues to take all appropriate actions."

Disgusting to think that your kids aren’t even safe in school.... not only do you have the streets to worry about but, actions from fellow pupils within schools also!!!

Hope the girls haven’t got any life threatening injuries and make a full recovery.

I knew this school was going down hill but i never knew it was that bad. Back when i went there, i got bullied alot but the school never really did anything about it, all they used to do was put us in a meeting room and tell us to be friends but they never really knew what went on behind closed doors because they were too busy sorting out something more ridiculous. I just hope that those girls are okay and that this really opens the eyes of the teachers to help them realise how serious things are getting within the school

Well clearly there was as the police have confirmed that people needed medical attention!

To the person who said they hope the injuries aren't life threatening - if they've gone to Queen Mary's then I doubt it as its only a Minor Injury Unit/Ophthalmology Hospital

Squashy pants,

I agree, it was a school with bullying problems when I was there and now that my friend's daughter goes there, some 15 or so years later it hasn't changed. Same old attitude from the teachers about it too. The school's laughably frou-frou website doesn't reflect the reality of that place at all.

Even when my sister was there years and years ago, she had a broken bottle held up against her neck by a group of girls just outside the gate and they said they couldn't do anything about it because it was outside school but then when one of her friends swore at the bus top she got detention

Squashy Pants, what year did you leave? I wonder if we're the same era?

Getting a detention for swearing, haha, yeah, or getting your earrings taken off you, all the really important things that aid learning and create a school community free from violence and bullying. We always said they were all about show, spending the budget on blue chairs and ornamental cabbages. They have to wear blazers now. Lovely in the hot weather with the woollen kilts.

To all the people saying it didn't happen, are you saying there was no incident at all? What do you mean a 'member' of the school? Do you mean a pupil? If nothing happened then why are the police involved?

Where does this post state an attack took place? From what I have read, there is no dispute that something was sprayed, and it would appear that that something should not have been in school, and certainly not sprayed in the playground.

When you say it's false, are you saying the event did not take place and it's been made up? If the allegation is false, perhaps you could enlighten us as to what did take place.

On the contrary my daughter achieved 10 GCSE's there & her welfare as well as her peers was taken seriously & professionally. Visiting the school many times over the years was ways a friendly & happy environment. Any minor issues I reported were delt with.

Recent Ofsted inspection grades it as good in all categories including leadership & management and also behaviour & safety of pupils. This also took into account views & comments of pupils & parents who state bullying & bad behaviour is well tackled & pupils are aware of the consequences.

This school has over a 1000 pupils & all schools at some time will suffer bullying at varying degrees. How it's managed is the key issue and inspectors confirm that it's managed & delt with.

Lots of anecdotal statements from posts on here & quite bizarre you'd want to smear your own school with the assistance of the NS. It does the school either you or your child attends no favours & inevitably impacts on your own child. If you feel neglect by the school has happened then go through the right channels which will address any issues.

From actual experience (not hearsay) the head, Karen Raven, is both professional & upholds pupil safety above all. That was evident by what I saw and during school trips. Very quick to jump on the 'hearsay' band waggon or the usual 'yeah my friend/sister/cousin etc went there and was bullied' but I can only state what I saw & my daughters experience. Also if something happened historically then it's not relevant so what's the point your making? They bear no correlation what so ever!

NS did a similar bullying smear story on this school several years ago. My daughter said the reported version was not only completely distorted but the alleged victim was in fact the bully & her victims decided to stand up against her.

I didn't see or witness the incident, nor did most of these posters, including probably ones claiming a distorted version. I can only base my judgment of actual experience, my daughters excellent exam results & the good Ofsted report which incidentally has always been good under the current inspecting regime.

Perhaps families of the alleged victim should be aware of how there child will always now be labelled as the 'one' that smeared the school. Problem openly expressed by pupils proud of their school & covertly by other parents & teachers angry by the tactics used by the alleged victims which appears to be fuelled by a potential & financial compensation claim. Quite bizarre you'd ignore the correct channels & attempt to smear your child's school in revenge. I can assure you it doesn't work & usually backfires.

Why not mention that at the time? With your sustained & blinkered views and intent to smear it would seem relevant to mention the full facts then & not after it's questioned. You say it happened years & years ago so not really relevant at all to the current time or alleged management of the school. Seems very unlikely a number of girls would be able to secure a police escort for a whole week & struggle to see that they'd have the available resources to do such.

How absurd, so your suggesting a school by the appearance of their toilets determines a schools inspection!!! Of course a school will present itself in the best possible light however the inspection grades are determined by data bit current & historical, lesson observations, interviews with both staff, pupils, parents & governors and analysis of class books. School policies are scrutinised along with finance, safeguarding, health & safety etc etc etc. if you claim that schools Ofsted grades can be influenced by a bar of soap & some toilet paper why aren't all schools graded as 'outstanding' if it was that simple? Is that to say schools that score below this had dirty toilets? Your statement is quite delusional to say the least.

I just hope that those girls are okay and that this really opens the eyes of the teachers to help them realise how serious things are getting within the school
'Going down hill' really!!! perhaps you could let the Ofsted inspectors that judged it good & made judgments on behaviour based on other parent & pupil comments & views got it completely wrong. My daughters pleasant & very recent 5 yr experience there & her 10 GCSE's including four 'A's was not a result of her teachers, not a result of after school & weekend revision sessions but a fluke as apparently despite hard evidence it's according to your historical anecdotal evidence is going down hill, silly me!
No doubt this story will attract a hoard of trolls all claiming how 'well when I was there' ....
Your daughters academic achievements at the school were more than likely due to an over pretentious bearing parent who probably ' rail Roaded' the kid throughout its delightful school years if reading your comments are anything to go by. pray, what will you accuse me of being this time just for a laugh?

Why is it being a 'troll' if someone had a very different experience than the one you describe? I'm glad that your daughter had 'a very pleasant experience' whilst at the school, but why would you seek to blame people if they didn't?

I'm a teacher now. I wouldn't touch that school with a barge pole for my own daughter.
Could it be 'hatersgonnahate' is a troll itself but can't quite grasp the fact that it is one? It doesn't mind posting is own thoughts on issues and expect all to agree with it, but other posters are not allowed the same courtesy it would seem. Plus, you've got to take an hour or so out of your spare time to read its somewhat lengthy drones and almost die of boredom whilst it's trying to get to the point. Need I say anymore about it except I use the term 'it' because one does not know whether it is male or female!

Listen mate. If the school is visibly misleading observers, what do you thInk they are doing behind closed doors, eg. Choosing brown noser parents to speak up for them. And yes, you can get on in a malfunctioning school; but you would have to be extremelyh thick skinned to ignore all the goings on, and have well off parents to employ tutors for you.
