My 6 year old had to go breakfast club this morning he has only ever been once before today and that was couple of years ago. and a child from year 6 strangled him. I spoke to the head about it and she agreed its not on. anyway i went to pick up my older son from keystage 2. and she walked up to the boy and told him stop messing about with your orange then she just walked of and did not say a thing to him....and because of all that being on my mind i forgot my 3 year old and almost went home without her!

I think you should put all of that in to a letter, and point out how bad it is that she made you forget your three year old.

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 20:51:16

lol me forgetting her not their fault was just ranting

And write a letter to the strangler's mum, about the strangling and the orange peel.

I'm not sure I really understand your post - do you mean that the head said they would discipline the child who strangled yours but didn't do it in front of you? Perhaps they thought it was inappropriate to address them whilst you were there.

Also, it's not right that your son had to go to breakfast club, especially if he gets strangled. Your the mum, it should be your choice.

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 20:54:42

true... i do need to give it a chance to see if anything happens

Vivacia Fri 20-Sep-13 20:54:53

Argh, "you're the mum".

I am lost as to what happened.

Perhaps the head chose to deal with it later. Perhaps he wanted to talk to the breakfast club staff before diving in.

bundaberg Fri 20-Sep-13 20:57:05

yes i agree, the head wouldn't necessarily have gone and told the boy off straight away.
i suspect she'll want to talk to the people running the breakfast club to see how they dealt with it/if they were aware of it and then will take it from there

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 20:57:41

true sirzy i just have to wait i guess. what has pissed me of more if the fact that it was a year 6 on to a year 2

littlewhitebag Fri 20-Sep-13 20:58:06

What exactly do you mean by 'strangle' and did this happen this time or the last time 2 years ago? And what do the orange and the 3 year old have to do with anything? confused

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 21:00:40

lat time 2 years ago??? what you mean... it just seemed it was more important to talk to him about an orange than it was about what he had done to my child... but as others have said i guess if i was still around it would have been difficult

Vivacia Fri 20-Sep-13 21:01:34

It was the three year old's orange that the year six was eating, I think.

Your son was strangled. That is very bad and yes, kick off about that. I would follow it up with head in a week and ask for confirmation that the strangler has been spoken to and your 6yr old apologised to.

Send the Head an email asking for a follow-up to your verbal complaint. It is a serious matter as the breakfast club staff should have been aware and they clearly weren't. Mention that your child does not feel safe at the school now. This will flag to the Head that you are unhappy and that you will be ticking the wrong boxes if Ofsted arrive.

littlewhitebag Fri 20-Sep-13 21:07:18

But i still don't actually know what happened. Strangle is a very emotive work. He obviously did not kill your DS so did he hold him tightly, what did he use, was your son injured, was it a game? So much more information needed here.

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 21:09:33

thank you lizzyy i will do that.

littlewhitebag no he was not killed that does not mean he was not hurt though. you dont say lets wait till his dead then i will complain...

littlewhitebag Fri 20-Sep-13 21:12:07

No, i don't mean that at all, but strangle can mean so many things and i have no idea what actually happened. I work in a job where i need to get to the bottom of things and find out exact details. I could never, ever accept the notion of 'strangling' without being precise about what happened.

Vivacia Fri 20-Sep-13 21:13:28

It's curious that the staff did not notice, but the OP did. Why didn't you stop the Strangler?

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 21:13:39

well i asked my son to show me what he did on my arm and her got both his hands and squeezed my arm really hard...

littlewhitebag Fri 20-Sep-13 21:14:43

I assume this was around the neck. Is he marked at all?

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 21:16:58

not now but this was between 7.45 and 8.30

poppingin1 Fri 20-Sep-13 21:17:06

Oh my god!

A child strangled yours shock

When i see threads like this one it makes me nervous about my DD starting school. Thank goodness she is only 2.

ghostspirit Fri 20-Sep-13 21:17:40

oh yes and round the neck
