Video showing student grappling with teacher at Bromley College goes viral
The incident occurred in January 2023, but the video is currently making its rounds on social media with more than 270,000 views on Twitter.
It shows the pair leaving a classroom before grappling with each other and ending up on the floor – with the teacher on top of the student.
The pair then get back on their feet before the confrontation appears to continue.
During the video a number of different voices can be heard commenting, saying things such as ‘leave it’ and ‘don’t get sacked over it’.
The caption on the video, which appears to originally be a Snapchat clip, reads: “Teacher 1, student 0”.
The police were contacted following the incident and “immediate action was taken”.
An internal investigation has been carried out, resulting in the student being excluded.
The staff member is being “fully supported” by the college.
A spokesperson for the college said that “this was not a fight” and that “teachers are professionally trained to deal with such situations.”
