The footage shows a female teacher who appears to charge at a female student before they begin fighting in front of the lockers.

A male student attempts to intervene and break up the fight.

Another part of the video appears to show the teacher asking the student to stop using her mobile phone in the classroom, before the student pushes a chair towards the teacher.

The student is then showing throwing something at the teacher before exiting the classroom into the hallway, where the altercation becomes physical.

The school have since released a statement saying that the teacher has been treated for injuries and placed on administrative leave while an investigation is underway.
