Police dealt with a fight involving several young people in Potters Bar this afternoon.

A Herts Police spokesman said: “Police attended a pre-arranged appointment at The Park Education Support Centre this morning (Monday, October 16), and while there, an unrelated disturbance occurred resulting in damage to a window, so extra officers arrived to assist.”

Officers dealt with a fight at around midday involving several young people, which had involved damage to a window at the centre.

Members of the public reported seeing as many as seven police cars in the High Street.

The spokesman added: “Police and school staff both assisted in breaking up the fight.

“When the extra officers arrived the students started to calm down.”

The Park Education Support Centre states online: “We provide educational programmes to support pupils who live in Welwyn, Hatfield and Hertsmere Double District and who are ‘at serious risk’ of permanent exclusion or who have been permanently excluded from their mainstream school.

“We pride ourselves in providing a warm and friendly centre with a very clear and structured behaviour policy.

“Our vision and core purpose is to meet the needs of our young people, support them with their learning and to prepare them for living an independent and purposeful life through a broad, balanced curriculum and good quality teaching, care and guidance.”

The centre in Potters Bar is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
