Can I insist that bully is kept away from my son?

There is a boy on DS's table who has taken a dislike to him. Incidents include spitting in his face, throwing food in his face, name calling and antagonistic behaviour such as not letting him use the felt tips, snatching his pencil case and breaking his pens etc.

I've spoken to the teacher and she has moved the boy to a different part of the table but the incidents keep happening.

I want the boy moved from DS's table completely and kept away from DS as much as possible.

If this isn't possible then what should be the next steps in this situation? I've never had to deal with bullying before.

The way I'm feeling I just want to grab the boy and skelp his arse angry

BTW, DS is 7, bully boy is 8.

Complain again. Keep a list of incidents. I hate it when schools are passive about bullying and try to pretend it will go away. In the past I have had words with the bully himself and it has worked.

I have known parents have a quiet word with bullies ... usually something like `watchout`.
Sencond, email every incident, complain to the head, follow up every meeting with an email. Look at the complaints policy.

Email the teacher (so there is a written record). Mention 'duty of care' and that you want your DS moved to a different group. If there have been any playground incidents ask for more supervision at break and/or some teacher/TA-led games.
If you feel the teacher isn't dealing with it, then escalate it to HT.
(I wouldn't speak to the other DC. This is a supervision issue. I'd lay it firmly at the teacher's door).

I agree with the above suggestions.

In the email when you mention duty of care id be inclined to mention that your concerns will indeed reach Ofsted in order for them to visit the school to investigate best practices, policy and procedures are being followed and managed effectively!

This is unacceptable and your child's welfare and human rights are not being met!

Poor boy..

Good luck xx
