Concerned mum Stacey Winfindale removed her son Jed, and his brother and two sisters, from their schools in Rotherham, as she claims bullying has escalated in recent weeks.

The Star reported last month that 13-year-old Jed was awarded a four-figure compensation sum after an attack at Maltby Academy. He said he suffered nightmares and flashbacks after being hit by a pupil wielding a wooden drawing board.

Mrs Winfindale said all four of her children - the younger two are at primary schools in Maltby - are now being targeted by bullies, adding: “My children will not be going back to school until they’re safe.”

Maltby principal David Sutton said: “The academy has communicated regularly with the family and responded appropriately to all allegations made.”
