I need the facts(5 Posts)
My child has been a state tonight telling me that another child of the opposite sex. Touches my child's privates when my child has said no. The other child says "if you don't let me touch them and if you don't let me see them then I will tell the teacher you showed me your privates" this child has said this before and my child has been absolutely at breaking point declaring their innocence and was crying so hard my child could barely breathe staying this child lies and tells the teacher things that aren't true! Now my child has told me this, Iv been into the school on several occasions regarding this child's behaviour towards mine regarding bullying, name calling, threatening etc.. this time my child has told me this and when my child expressed that this child made my child put their tongue in the other child's mouth, my child then rushed to the bathroom crying, saying it was disgusting and my child hated it and began washing their mouth out repeatedly with water and mouth wash. The children are both the same age (7) please help. Obviously Monday morning I will be up the school but at this moment I am angry and terrified and feel my heart has been ripped into two seeing how distressed my child is. I need some advice on how to put this to the school and where I stand with ofsted and informing them of my continuous times in the school reporting this child over the last year or so, all I am told is that they will keep and eye. My child was terrified to tell anyone this as my child felt this would get them into trouble. Thanks for reading please help if you can xx
Ring social services or the NSPCC for advice.
If you have reported concerns to the school and they have not protected your child this is not acceptable.
Have you spoken to the head about this, as well as your child’s teacher? Ask to see the school’s safeguarding policy. This is not acceptable - the school needs to protect your child.
It is the schools duty to safeguard your child, I would speak to the head first thing on Monday and not send your child back to school until they can reassure you what measures they have put in place to keep your child safe. Escalate to Ofsted if you are not satisfied with the schools response.
Regardless of age it's a case of sexual assault and shouldn't be taken lightly by the school at all !
I don't have much advice but I hope this gets resolved and your child can continue to focus on being 7 x
