The boy, a pupil at St Sylvester’s Primary, was involved in the incident, which took place near the gates of the school on Tuesday.

A grandparent of a child who attends the school told ‘The Northern Scot’ that there had been concern for the safety of pupils.

However, a spokesman for the local authority said that no children or staff were at risk at any time.

A spokesman for Moray Council said: “An incident occurred outside the gates of St Sylvester’s Primary in Elgin earlier this week involving a pupil and a small Swiss Army pocket knife.

“This was quickly and appropriately dealt with by staff. No pupils or staff were at risk at any time. The incident is now resolved.”

It is believed that the boy is now back in school.

Police Scotland confirmed they were called to an incident outside the primary at around 12.15pm on Tuesday, and officers were continuing their enquiries.
