Pupils are calling their parents telling them the school is in lockdown. But one parent says they have spoken to the school and the situation is under control.

Nevertheless a crowd of concerned parents are currently outside the school demanding to take their children home.

Reports have emerged claiming a pupil was stabbed in the back with a pair of scissors in the science block of the school, which was formerly known as Stantonbury Campus. It is alleged the offender was not a pupil at the school.

Several police cars and an ambulance are at the school.

A spokesman for the campus confirmed there has been an incident.

"A student in Stantonbury International School has been assaulted by another student during a fire drill."

The spokesman refused to comment further or to say how badly the pupil has been injured.

A parent said: "My child told me armed police are there and teachers are saying the pupils can't go anywhere. Police have put school on lockdown."

Another said: "I've spoken to the school and they've told me it is all in hand and there's no need to panic."
