A female teacher who was stabbed at a West Yorkshire school this morning has died.

Police were called to Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds this morning at 11.48am by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service who were attending a report of a member of staff having been stabbed.

The member of staff was taken to hospital for treatment but was subsequently pronounced dead.

 

A 15-year-old boy, a pupil at the school, has been arrested in connection with the incident and is currently in custody.

Detective Superintendent Simon Beldon, from West Yorkshire Police Protective Services (Crime), said: “We would like to reassure people that this has been an isolated incident and there is no ongoing risk to pupils or staff at the school.

“The situation is under control and officers, including safer schools officers and members of the local neighbourhood policing team, are currently at the school and are liaising closely with staff. The rest of the school is continuing to operate as normal and we would ask that parents do not attend the site unless directly requested to do so by the school.

“Our enquiries are at a very early stage but the full circumstances of this incident will obviously be the subject of a full and thorough investigation.”
