The BBC report:

Teachers and carers have been assaulted 67 times in 18 months at a residential special school for boys with behavioural and social difficulties.

The figure for Foremost School near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, is from a BBC Freedom of Information request.

The 20-pupil school is in special measures after an earlier Ofsted inspection and costs £2m a year to run.
