Police are investigating a report of an attempted abduction outside a Hamilton school.

Frankton School says a man tried to grab a student, putting his hand over the boy's mouth and lifting him up on Monday afternoon.

In a Facebook post, it said the student escaped after kicking the man in the groin and managed to run to his mother in the carpark.

"He was badly shaken and the police were called," it said.

Police say officers have spoken to the boy and his mother.

The offender is believed to be in his early 20s, with black hair.
