A BOY has admitted assaulting his teacher and throwing a brick at a school staff member.
A youth court at Mold heard how the boy got angry and kicked a door, aiming it at another pupil in last July.
But the teacher intervened and the door struck her hand, causing an injury.
Her hand was extremely sore and she was unable to grip anything for several days, explained prosecutor Alun Humphreys.
The boy, from the Flint area, admitted a reckless assault charge and said he did not mean to hurt anyone.
Magistrates heard the boy suffered from ADHD and dyslexia, became angry and frustrated on occasions and did not remember what he had done.
The court adjourned sentence for a report from the youth justice service over possible reparation.
Mr Humphreys said on the day of the offence, the boy was being generally disruptive and swearing.
He was calling staff names and when another pupil walked in and made a comment, he reacted by kicking the door with the intention of striking the other pupil.
The female teacher stepped forwards to prevent the door from striking the pupil but the door hit her hand.
The boy fled immediately after the incident and was followed by a teacher and a youth justice worker.
He was very agitated, had a brick in his hand, he told them in no uncertain terms not to follow him or he would “smash them”. The boy threw the brick but it did not strike them.
Phillip Marshall-Thomas, defending, said his client’s health conditions meant he sometimes got angry and frustrated.
He had been medicated but reacted badly to it and had stopped taking it.
It was hoped new medication could be prescribed soon.
His mother was very supportive and they were trying to work through his problems.
She said her son had improved and was now much better and calmer.
He was very remorseful and accepted what he had done.
