Thanks @Alex T !I wish we had this kind of leverage on our school (meaning the parents of the neutral kids plus the parents of the " deputy" and some boys' parents too).Can I just say, that the school not wanting to get involved in what amounts to bullying on their premises, is disgusting. This would never be tolerated here. It only takes one sniff of a phone call from an upset parent to the Head Teacher, as is what happened where I work this very week, for parents to be brought in & solutions discussed. Bullying at schools here has zero tolerance & often results in suspension or in extreme cases, expulsion.
I am really sorry your daughter is having to go through this. I hope she can be the bigger person & keep her head up high. Bowing to the drama is exactly what a bully wants you to do, as they thrive on the reaction they achieve.
My daughter is already trying to be super neutral. But she WON'T LEAVE HER ALONE.
Example: They were both injured so no PE. They were allowed to do homework in another teacher's class. QB wants to copy daughter's homework. Daughter sais "no".
Daughter gets home and her book with said homework is missing. She panics. I tell her that the other girl must have "accidentally" taken the book. I call, txt, WhatsApp the mom. No response. I email. Daughter's distraught. It was an assignment over several days. Next morning boom eMails back: yes, sorry xyz accidentally took the book.
Plus adds condescendingly: well those things seem "very important to you", I saw you called, texted and WhatsApped, too....
Well, yes.bit actually is.
Had this been the only incident, one might think: coincidence. But it's one of so many.
She also bullied her gang members into giving her the access codes for their online accounts for a school competition.Stole their correct answers, then put wrong answers in.
She was nine .
Teacher REALLY tried to do something (talked about it in class and excluded her from the competition, but wanted to have the incident signalled). Superintendent told her not to. No bad publicity for the school!!!
