A member of staff at a Dundee school has been charged with assaulting a pupil.
Police officers were called to Kingspark, on the city’s Glenaffric Terrace, following an alleged assault at the facility.
A 48-year-old woman was arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 48-year-old woman has been charged in connection with an alleged assault that happened at Kingspark School, Dundee on Tuesday October 27.”
The spokeswoman added that a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.
A spokeswoman for the local authority said that there was an “ongoing legal matter”, adding that it would not be appropriate to comment further.
Kingspark School was purpose-built in 2009-10 for pupils who have additional support needs, physical disabilities and medical problems.
Pupils are predominantly from Dundee, but some also attend from outwith the city, including Angus.
The school has approximately 175 pupils, aged between five and 18.
It is divided into four main departments primary, secondary, an all-age enhanced support area, and a department of practical and aesthetic subjects, including art, music and physical education.
Earlier this year the school was given a favourable review by inspectors.
They said Kingspark was making “significant progress” in improving its curriculum.
However, the school also acknowledged there were improvements still to be made.
Learning experiences were said to be “still too variable”.
