DD in Yr3, boy in same year grabbed her genitals, advice please. Is this something the school needs to put 'on record'?

When I picked up DD aged 7 today her teacher told me a boy in the same year had put his hand up her skirt.

DD told me a boy had pulled down her skirt and tights when she was on the carpet, laughed and grabbed her genitals repeatedly. He also did the same to her friend. DD seems fine, we've had a talk about private parts and how you should always tell your teacher if someone is being mean.

The teacher told me the boys parents will be told, and the boy will see the Headmaster tomorrow morning. In the past school has always seemed to to have followed correct procedures. However, as this is 'sexual' behaviour is this something that should go on 'record'? Should I write to the school or ask to speak to the Head? Or am I just going OTT. I feel a bit emotional right now and I really don't know the best course of action.

If the boy is seeing the headmaster I would assume that correct procedure is being followed.
I'm not sure they'd be in any position to tell you exactly how they are dealing with a child that's not yours.

Thanks. I've not had any experiences of bullying and I was wondering if I should have something 'on paper' if it happens again. I'm being OTT though, aren't I? I need to calm down a bit.

You're not being OTT, I'd be just as shocked and want to know the right thing was being done.
Chances are with this sort of behaviour, they will be taking it seriously.

The thing is, the school can't tell you what they are doing with the other boy, or what they are saying to his parents or what record/action will be taken. The most they can do is reassure you that they are taking it seriously, that the boy is being dealt with by the head and that the parents will be informed. The rest is confidential between the boy and his parents.

You are right to think this is serious and you are not being OTT, but it does sound as if the school is on the ball.

DP spoke to DD's teacher this morning, and they are taking appropriate action. They will have a meeting with the boys parents, and the teacher will speak to DD today to make sure she's ok.
