I am shocked, was just dropping off dd(8) at school when I saw 2 girls in her class. having a fight whist waiting unsupervised outside her classroom (she's in a mobile in the playground).

I went to pretty rough school myself so am not easily shocked by these things but at 8!!

Does this happen at your DCs schools?

Am interested to know, did you do anything?
What did your DD say? She must know if it's a normal occurrence for those girls?

Have never seen it at our school - girls OR boys.

I would have waded in and broken it up then hauled them off to the Head. (Provided I was bigger than them of course!)

Sounds awful. We don't even get boys fighting in our school. I'd be quite scared if we did

Yes, unfortunately it is frequent behaviour for one of the girls in particular. I was walking away when I saw them fighting, and went back immediately as I thought someone would be hurt (it was proper fighting).

They stopped as soon as they saw me standing there and I gave them a stern look and asked if everything was okay. I then informed a nearby teacher (who hadn't noticed).

To be honest I didn't want dd to face any repercussions of me getting involved so I popped back into school later and had a talk with the deputy head. She knew who it was without saying and said that this girl is 'getting help'for her problems.
