Do go to the school and ask to speak to someone. Racism is not acceptable.

Speak to the school. They need to nip that in the bud quickly.
Sorry you are going thtough this.

What age are children?
YOU need to speak to school - you mention that you are French so if you don't feel confident doing this yourself because of language issues then have someone who you trust come with you.

The school will be extremely supportive - despite all the Brexit crap, being racist is not tolerated.

That’s just nasty, definitely go to the school.

Does the school know its an ongoing issue? That's really not OK at any age.

Thank you so much everyone .... my child is 7 years old in yr 3 class and the girl in question is 8 in yr 4 class and my child says she dont want to tell teacher anymore and told me she just ignore her and go and play with other people who like her . I will go with my sister in law who speaks good english to the office tommorow to speak about the problem. I also have 2 other children at the same school in year 6 and reception and they have no problem with friends at all.

No it is not acceptable. No matter what your child says she should be exposed to listening to that at school and certainly should not think it is in anyway acceptable.

Do speak to the school. Where I am a governor we have reports from the head on any racist incidents. It’s the law that we do. Incidents are taken very seriously. Therefore you must report it. Children who behave like this are spoken to by the Head and their future behaviour is monitored.

Sadly young children often learn these attitudes from their parents but it is not tolerated in any school, ever.

That's an absolute disgrace.

The school should have an equality policy on their website, and may also have a parental behaviour one too (at the school where I'm a governor we had to approve one relatively recently).

Please take it up with the head. If they do not have a parental behaviour policy, this is something positive you could suggest.

If you do not feel fully supported by the head (and I truly hope this won't be the case), the next step would be the chair of governors.

How did the talk to the school go?

Rebecca899 Wed 19-Sep-18 18:09:34
