THE head teacher at The Angmering School has warned that students caught using drugs will be dealt with severely.
This follows the recent exclusion of a student caught with a small quantity of cannabis at the school, last month.
Head teacher, David Brixey, has warned the school enforces a “zero tolerance” rule when dealing with the substance.
He said: “This is something that we feel is unacceptable.
“I would just wish to reassure parents that this was a completely isolated incident and that the school, categorically, does not have a problem with drugs.
He added: “Inevitably, at some point, schools will have to deal with students taking drugs.
“It’s a sad fact of life. But the issue has been resolved, and the student’s parents have been made aware of the situation.”
Mr Brixey added that the police were also aware of the incident but took no further action.
