Teacher has discussed my complaint with bully and her parent (children are 10 yr old girls). Parent looks a bit frightening.
What do you think is the best way to interact with them if you are passing them on school drop off?

Ignore them. You've addressed it via the school, what would be gained by engaging with them when you're not confident in doing so?

Ignore. Don't engage at all.

Thanks both. BTW, I don't mean engage regarding the bullying, just your normal greetings. I would normally smile and greet this mother. I don't think she'll be smiling and greeting me from now on though.

The child bullys the child.
Your letting the adult bully the adult.

Have none of it and ignor

She'll be blind to her darling daughters bullying - ignore and mentally raise a finger (I may or may not do this)

How are you getting on?

Well, they don't deserve your greetings. If I am there, I would not talk to them nor even glance at their path.

Keep everything formal and written form or in a controlled setting at school.
If you start up with them, it may make things worse. A letter on solicitors letterhead can do so much more than some argy bargy in the car park

Hi there my 6 year old daughter was being bullied in reception age 5 by her best friend verbs then got physical. I dike to school and parent. It was resolved ad died down but in year 1 it's cropped up again. The girl is a bully to a few others too and has reduced them to tears to but my daughter being her best friend she does it to her more.

I now have a meeting with the head. So far the head has said last year it's just name calling kids playground stuff! What can I ask the head questions pls and advice. She is not very approachable or sympathetic but the deputy is but not sure she will there.
Thanks

I think you should start a new thread -

Saying this girl is your DD best friend places her as someone special - she is not a friend let alone a best friend -

You need to drop the title and get DD moved from her -

And you need to teach your DD about friendship and standing up for herself.
