What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Bullying In School By Asian Student

My daughter has special needs (autism), she is in a main stream primary school where currently she is being bullied by an Asian student in her class. She has been constantly picking at her all the time, pushing her out of the dinner queue and yesterday left her with a rope burns to the hands after snatching a skipping rope from her at force.

I've spoken to class the teacher several times. He has tried to help but this has only aggravated the situation.

I then spoke to the head teacher who said my child needed to go to the learning mentors to help with her confidence to stand up to the bully. The head had no wish to speak with the bully or her parents.

I work in the school myself as a welfare assistant and feel that I have now no option but to remove my child from the school and resign myself as I am also a parent governor. Nice to see the school following the anti-bullying policy.

Could anyone help with legal advice before the racist issue is thrown at us and before I end up taking matters into our own hands.

Yesterday spoke to SENCO who said that's what girls are like unfortunately.

Thank You.

I am a Lawyer in Australia. My advice to you is that you engage a Lawyer and have them write to the school. Your child does have legal rights. The school has certain legal duties and responsibilities to its pupils. The school is abrogating those responsibilities.
In the adult world, when one is assaulted, the Police do not tell the Victim to learn coping strategies. The perpetrator is prosecuted.
I also suggest you take your child to the Doctor and have the injuries - physical and emotional - documented. It will comprise objective evidence, should you decide that you want to sue the school for dereliction of fiduciary duty to your child.

Hope this helps.
