What's the best way to progress?
My (8yo) child is being underhandedly bullied by the child of one of the governors. Pillar of the community etc. Their child can do no wrong but child is not as innocent as makes out.

It's been going on a while now. Long story, but how does one handle it when the 'power' is with the other parents.

In exactly the same way as you would if the parent wasn't a governor.

I agree with ontheroses. I'm a governor. If any of my kids were behaving badly I'd be absolutely bloody furious if they were treated leniently because of my position.

It should make no difference at all. A governor's child is not more "important" than your child.

Dealing with the family that's very much top dogs, and their precious moppet who can do no wrong.

Except she isn't as pleasant as her parents think. It's going to be a hard job but I have to look after DD

Each and every time your child is bullied, report the incident to school in writing.

If they do not take it seriously report to board of governors.

If they do not take it seriously report to local authority.

If they do not take it seriously report to Ofsted, local MP etc.

And so and on
