My son, 11, had to have his finger AMPUTATED after he was 'attacked by gang of bullies at school'

A MUM has claimed her son had to have one of his fingers amputated after trying to get away from an alleged attack by vile bullies.

Shantal Bailey claims little lad Raheem, 11, was "desperately" trying to flee over a school fence when he caught his finger.

She says the horrific catch ended up "causing the skin to strip and the finger to break in half", South Wales Argus reported.

The mum-of-four says the incident was a culmination of "racial and physical abuse" as well as other forms of bullying since he started at the school in Wales in September.

The mum says matters came to a head earlier this week when her son "called me in tears… saying that he's being bullied" at South Wales' Abertillery Learning Community.

Shantal added that a teacher at the school in Abertillery had allegedly threatened to put Raheem in detention "despite him being the one that’s getting picked on".

She said she went to the school on May 16 and spoke to staff, who "reassured [me] that everything would be handled by the Tuesday morning".

But the following day, little Raheem was allegedly "attacked and beaten" by a group of school kids during morning break time, she wrote on Facebook.

"He was pushed to the ground and then repeatedly kicked", devastated Chantal said.

She claimed: "Consequently, Raheem made a desperate attempt to leave the school grounds in order to escape the situation."

This is when the horror incident took place, the mum claimed.

Initially, when the school told the mum about her son's injury, she alleges they "told me that the ambulance wouldn’t arrive for two hours, but advised me not to drive Raheem to A&E myself".

He was taken to a minor injury unit and to their horror, the family was told he would require surgery at another hospital.

Shantal said they then spent "five hours waiting for an ambulance to transfer us" to Swansea where doctors said Raheem could lose his finger.

She added: "I had to explain this to him while he sat there in agony.

"After six hours of surgery to save it, which was ultimately unsuccessful, his finger had to be amputated."

She claims that from the "day of the incident until now" Raheem's school "have not reached out to me to check on his well-being".

The mum said she had reported the matter to the police.

Raheem is now recovering after his operation but remains in "a lot of pain", his mum said.

A spokesperson for Abertillery Learning Community told South Wales Argus: “We are currently working closely with Gwent Police and the local authority to establish the full details of the incident.

"The well-being and safety of our pupils and staff remains of paramount importance. We will not be commenting further at this time.”

Gwent Police confirmed it is investigating the incident, after receiving a report on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the force said: “We received a report of an incident at a school in Abertillery around 1pm on Wednesday, May 18 where an 11-year-old boy was injured.
