Another thing you can do is your community or country has an office specifically for issues not being properly addressed in schools. In Washington State,it's the office for education ombudsman, Different places have different names, but contact the school board, if that doesn't help, contact your represnetative. I'm guessing you're from the UK, they have something. In Finland, there was an office that the parents or the child could write to about abuses within the school, I'm guessing everywhere has one. I wish my aunt and uncle were still living, they'd know, I'm sure they went to them. I lived in London for a time as a child.

make the classroom teacher aware of your concerns. they will embed anti-bullying practices within the rules in the classroom (and in the school place overall). If the teacher sees any issues or hears of any, they will deal with it. Check in every couple of weeks and see how your child has been going. it will be ok :)

Wow.. When will this end? What is going on at home that these kids r bullying other kids? People should not hv kids if they do not want to parent!!! Sorry for the rant. I just am disgusted b this because these bad seeds r acting out because they r not getting something from home. It typically is no use talking to the parents because they r typically clueless and defensive.

I've gone to the police about bullying, even if the agressor is a child, and only if the parents don't intervene. I don't want the child to go to jail, but if the police know who the bullies are, they can dirvert it far more easily when the child is small.
If the teachers and principal are bad news, go to the school board about the teachers and the bulllying

If the school itself doesn't deal with the problem then you go to the school board.
