You really need to get into the school and talk to everyone about your son. The classroom teacher should be supporting a positive and kind environment where everyone cares for each other. This is so hard on everyone in the family when something like this happens. What's causing these incidents? What are your son's social interactions like? Does he enter into play easily, is he shy, active? Being a parent is like being a good detective. Try and figure out which children are involved and if at all possible ask to volunteer in the classroom so that you can see for yourself the dynamics between the children. Hang in there. One other thought is to look at the Roots of Empathy program online and see if this might be something that your school could embrace. Working with babies and the development of empathy and caring. A brilliant program.

I am so sorry to hear that things have not changed. I would ask to speak to the head of the school right away and would not deal with the administrative person again or the deputy head teacher. Go to the top. You have every right to be upset that no one has talked to you about this issue. You may also want to contact the chairperson of the Board of Governors and let that person know that you have a complaint that has not been addressed. We know that quick action is imperative when dealing with bullying issues - both for you son and you but also for the other children involved. What are the written guidelines at the school when a bullying incident is reported - you may want to ask for this since it should be part of any mission statement for the school? The protocol should be discussed with all concerned including the Board of Governors. Keep me posted!

Hi Evelyn
Thx for your response. My son was again pushed today. He got injured as well. I will take the matter to the head teacher and will not send my son back until then.😓

Hi Lynn
Thank you so much for taking your time out for me. Yesterday I did go to my son's school and wrote down my complaint. The lady who spoke to me was the administration manager. My son was reluctant to go in his class but I convinced him that it won't happen again. The admin manager lady took my application and assured me that it will not happen again and they would look into the matter. But when I picked up my son in the afternoon his pants were ripped again exactly from where they had been the previous day only wider at both knees plus he was injured with a bit of blood coming out of his knee area. I had made him wear the same pants for I wanted the staff to see what was going on with my son. Now today I went again in the morning and talked to the same lady. She added my complaint to my previous one and told me to wait for the deputy head teacher call. Still waiting it's 2 o clock in afternoon nobody called. I will talk to the head teacher too, I think I should. But I can't and will not send my son back until this matter is resolved.
U r rt I should also volunteer for his class. That could also be helpful. I think I would also want to join the board of governors of the school. That would also help me get a deeper insight into my son's problems.
Am I doing it all rt? I ll wait for your response. Thank you. Hugs n kisses for u from me n my son.😊😘

Writing a complaint is not enough. You need to be talking to the teachers, principal, school counselor and others about this at the school. It sounds like a bullying episode.
