The arrested girl is still being held, according to the force.


Students will be able to complete their coursework online on Thursday even though the school will be closed to support the police investigation into the incident.
Supt. Ross Evans made the following statement outside the school: “A teenage student and two teachers were transported to the hospital with stab wounds. Their wounds do not pose a threat to their lives.A teenage girl is being held by police after being detained on suspicion of trying to kill herself. There’s a knife in the evidence.

” “i’d additionally ask that people do now not speculate whilst there is a police research ongoing and to refer to legit channels for updates.”

Staff and children were commended by headteacher James Durbridge for their “calm and mature response” to the lockout.
He posted the following on the school’s website: “It’s been a really tough day. It goes without saying that I am thinking of the three people impacted by today’s incident, as well as their families.”
He continued: “we’re proud to have witnessed students embodying the faculty’s core values at the same time as assisting their friends and staff.”

Mr. Durbridge stated that anyone impacted would still be able to get support, even if the school will be closed on Thursday.
First Minister of Wales Vaughan Gething expressed his dismay after learning of the “serious incident.”


“A really unsettling moment for the community, families, and school. “Diolch [thank you] to the emergency personnel,” he uttered.
“I want to thank the police and emergency services for their ongoing response and my thoughts are with all those affected,” UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak wrote on X.
As the investigation progressed, Supt. Evans informed the residents of Ammanford that there would be increased police presence in the neighborhood in the days to come.

” “we are taking into consideration the victims, their circle of relatives, and all and sundry stricken by what has came about. This was a very upsetting incident,” he stated.


Where is Ysgol Dyffryn Aman?

Amman Valley college, or Ysgol Dyffryn Aman in English, is a bilingual complete faculty placed in Ammanford, Carmarthenshire.

The school has over 1,450 students, ranging in age from 11 to 18.
It is roughly 60 miles (97 km) from Cardiff and 20 miles (32 km) from Swansea’s center.

Shortly after 11:20, emergency personnel, including two air ambulance helicopters, arrived at the school.
The school’s parent, Lisa Barrett, told the BBC that her daughter texted her to inform her that the school was on lockdown.
“It is quite concerning,” Ms. Barrett had expressed.

“You hear from your child saying someone has been stabbed you don’t know what to do.”
Then, hundreds of parents waited outside the school gates to learn whether their children, who were trapped inside, were safe.
The secondary school did not declare the situation “contained” until approximately 15:20, at which point the police started releasing the kids.

Megan Keyte, the head girl, who is eighteen years old and not in school today, described the occurrence as “out of the blue.”
“one in all my buddies became inside just looking to do her psychology lesson and they had been instructed ‘code pink, you’re in lockdown’,” she recalled.
“You never anticipate something like this occurring in this vicinity or at our school. However, it demonstrates how swiftly the community comes together.”

As far as the BBC is aware, Fiona Elias, the deputy head teacher, is one of the teachers hurt in the incident.
“Very distressing” is how NASUWT teacher Patrick Roach described the event.

“whenever that feeling of safety and security is compromised, it is going to be of the utmost challenge for every teacher,” the speaker stated. “schools should be locations of safety and sanctuary.”

“At work, assault should not be a source of fear for any teacher.”
