- Mother drank pints of lager before turning up at the school
- 32-year-old threatened to 'batter' deputy headteacher
By Anna Edwards
A mother who turned up at her children's school while drunk has been banned from the premises after she bit the deputy headteacher on the arm.
Kelly Kociela appeared 'emotional and slurring' when she turned up at Filton Avenue Junior and Infant School, in Bristol, where she demanded to take her two youngsters from a club.
She then became abusive to staff in a 30 minute ordeal during which she bit teacher Matthew Cox, Bristol magistrates heard.
Drunken row: Kociela pleaded guilty to causing a nuisance on school premises, assault and using threatening words and behaviour
Kociela, 32, from Bristol, pleaded guilty to causing a nuisance on school premises, assault and using threatening words and behaviour on October 24.
The court heard she had previous convictions for being drunk in charge of a child in 2005, 2006, 2007 and this year and she will be sentenced on January 17.
"Emotional and slurring" Kelly Kociela turned up at the school, demanding to take her two youngsters
Magistrates bailed her on condition she complies with an existing Bristol City Council restraining order banning her from the school.
Andrea Edwards, prosecuting, said a drunken Kociela turned up at the school at 6pm, wanting to see her children.
Though staff tried to persuade her to go home she was claiming the staff were trying to take her children from her, Mrs Edwards said.
Mrs Edwards said: 'The defendant went into the infants school with deputy head teacher Matthew Cox.
'The defendant tried to push past him and she bit his right arm.
'It took him by surprise.
'She said: "If you don't give me my kids I'll batter you".'
The court heard the mother, who is now pregnant with her third child, was restrained and police were called.
She admitted downing three to four pint of lagers and some rum and cokes but couldn't recall biting Mr Cox or being aggressive.
The court was told Mr Cox went to hospital and was given precautionary tetanus and Hepatitis B jabs.
Catherine Spedding, defending, said the city council was already involved in the case and the mother was not allowed to go on the school premises.
Ms Spedding said: 'She is utterly appalled by the way she behaved.
'She had relapsed into alcohol after disruption within her family and my instructions are she apologised to the school and is working with social services to ensure there are no problems with the school.'
