Spalding Academy student is now recovering at home after being hit by a double decker bus as head teacher thanks emergency services
A boy who was injured after being hit by a double decker bus is recovering at home says his headteacher.
Spalding Academy Executive Headteacher Lucy Conley has praised the emergency services and staff for supporting the Year 8 pupil following the incident in Halmer Gate yesterday afternoon.
Mrs Conley said: “I can confirm that one of our Year 8 students was involved in a road traffic accident on Tuesday 29 June. This incident took place in the afternoon at the end of school. I understand that this student is now at home recovering and will hopefully be back in school very soon, to complete the school term.
"There were several members of school staff at Halmer Gate to respond when this incident happened, all of whom were able to assist and support. We would like to thank the tremendous job of the emergency services who were prompt to respond.
"The school is obviously working to support the family and we are in regular contact with them. We will be giving ongoing support to this Year 8 student and the family, including on their return to school and our thoughts and best wishes are with the student and the family at this time during this period of recovery.”
