A GIRL was stamped on as she was jumped on at the school gates by two older girls, a court heard.

The teen who stamped on her victim’s head outside the Swindon school has been given a youth rehabilitation order by magistrates. The other aggressor, said to have started the scrap, is understood to have been handed a caution.

Their victim, described as being two years younger, was pulled to the floor and hit – before being stamped several times. The attack in February was videoed and the footage circulated widely on social media. 

At the time, the school’s headteacher said the incident had been damaging for the children involved and the school.

Prosecuting the case at Swindon Youth Court this week, Nick Barr said the complainant had left school at around 3.10pm and was heading home: “Another girl approached her and engages her in aggressive behaviour. Her hair is pulled and she is dragged to the floor.” The girl was hit in the head. 

“While she is on the ground this defendant comes over, positions herself and stamps on her head several times,” Mr Barr added.

Interviewed about the incident, the second girl confessed she had “got angry and couldn’t stop”. 

The girl, who cannot be identified because she is under-18, pleaded guilty at Swindon Youth Court to assault by beating. Magistrates heard she had previous convictions for battery and malicious communications. 

Mark Glendenning, defending, said: “There is, unfortunately, a history between my client and the victim. “My client was the victim of an assault where she ended up having treatment from the hospital. 

“A friend has taken it upon themselves to intervene and remonstrate with the victim. My client accepts she has got involved.”

Sentencing the girl to a six-month youth referral order, chairman of the bench Linda Raine said: “It seemed like you might have a bit of a temper you might need to deal with.”
