Nothing has changed a week on. DD is still reporting bullying incidents. NFA including not talking to the boys involved or DD about the incidents. What should I do next?

First time I reported was a week ago and no one has called me in or on the phone to discuss it. I went in on Monday to discuss it. Called the head Tuesday to discuss it who said no one was going to be spoken to as there were too many inconsistencies in the report. The report was read out to me and it is incorrect 🙄 Children are 4/5.

Go to the board of governers? Write a letter rather than a phone call as it leaves a paper trail. Also if they refuse to do anything go to Ofsted. Feel for your DD hope you get it sorted

What are the incidents?

Yes I think governers next if face to face with head doesn't work.

Pinching, kicking, punching, poking little fingers where they shouldn't be.

I would email put it in writing
Are they in reception? Is it the same children each time

You need to put it all in writing in a neutral tone with dates and times and a request for it to be investigated. You need to ask for a response within x days.
Every time there is an incident repeat the process.

Phoning can be counter productive - messages not passed on, messages distorted in the telling, and no formal record.

It is much more difficult for a school to ignore a written communication.

Sorry about your DC flowers

Op if you mean what I think you mean by "fingers poking where they shouldn't be" then I'd have my daughter out of that school quick bloody smart shock

Yes Myth sad It's not being handled as seriously as I think it is. Yes it's Reception and yes it's the same children.

I've now sent an email detailing my concerns and have a meeting scheduled for this afternoon before I pick her up. Face to face and phone conversations have confused things. Forms have not been filled in accurately so I want a new form filled in and investigated from scratch.

After your meeting, send them an email "just to clarify our discussion of 6.10.17: we agreed that..." so EVERYTHING is in writing. not that I am paranoid or anything

Agree with MrsWooster

Thank you. I brought my notepad but actually another teacher scribed and I was given time and not pressured to read through and sign the notes. The school have been given poor advice by our safeguarding department of our LA. I will be complaining to them about how they have managed the process on Monday. It's now been considered a new issue so it's starting all over again.
