A science teacher arrested over a serious assault on a pupil is now being questioned on suspicion of attempted murder.

Science teacher Peter Harvey

Peter Harvey was arrested after the incident on Wednesday at All Saints' Roman Catholic School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

He is also being questioned about alleged attacks on two other schoolchildren.

Parents at the school gates said the 14-year-old boy, named as Jack Waterhouse. was allegedly hit with a weight which left him with serious head injuries.

One father said: "It's a massive shock and very sad because if there is something wrong with the teacher it cannot be totally his fault."

Claire Tonks, 23, who was dropping her nephew at the school said: "It's a good school and I can't believe it as it could have been my nephew."

A 48-year-old grandmother added: "The teacher has got to have been pushed to do it because he stands to lose his job."

Pupil Jack Waterhouse

Chris Holmes, 19, a semi-pro wrestler and former pupil at the school, said: "I'm shocked. He was an all right teacher and a decent guy."

He added: "He was not one of those guys where you would go 'Oh no, I've got him next'."

Tom Blythe, also 19 and a former pupil at the school, said: "I didn't think the pupils would give him stick. He was actually a decent bloke and got involved in school plays."

He described the teacher as "a bit of a legend. It must have been serious for him to snap".

The boy who was hurt was taken to King's Mill Hospital in the town but transferred to a specialist unit at Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham when his condition worsened.

Nottinghamshire County Council, the local education authority, said the boy's condition had "slightly improved".

His family are with him and have asked for privacy, a police spokeswoman said.

The school is in a rundown area of Mansfield, with boarded-up houses lining the street around it.
