Teenager sentenced for stabbing supply teacher at Bradford school

A teenager has been given an 11 year sentence after stabbing his supply teacher in a racially-motivated attack.

The 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent to Vincent Uzomah at Dixons Kings Academy in Bradford (pictured).

The judge sentenced the boy to an 11-year extended sentence which includes six years custody and a further five years on licence.

He denied a charge of attempted murder.

He was sentenced to 11 years at Bradford Crown Court today.

The prosecution said the attack on the 50-year-old supply teacher was racially motivated and the boy “bragged” about the stabbing on Facebook after the attack.

He stabbed Mr Uzomah in the stomach after a row about a mobile phone, on June 11. The teenager had brought a “substantial blade” into school that morning.
