School bullies

I feel certain they know who the little sods are and I will be saying as much tomorrow. Even if they don't know, they can ask the 'nice' kids in confidence. It's not hard to find out.

You could also remind them of the UN Convention on Children's Rights, and in particular of UNICEF's Children's Rights in Schools Award

Glad to hear it Nigel! Much better than being told 'he should do more to help himself'! Rolling Eyes Is he feeling a bit better going off to school now? Do let us know how he gets on!

I'm very glad to hear that too Nigel, so hopefully he'll find school a much more pleasant to be now.

Good. Just make sure you keep on top of this.

Squeaky wheel, and all that.

What I do wish we'd had though was some support and understanding for pupils with special needs, instead of them being left to flounder around on their own.  For example, dyslexia and autism weren't acknowledged then - children were just poor spellers/readers, even downright 'thick', or, in the latter case, a bit 'funny', something which led to them being isolated and a prime target for bullies

Children like that are given enhanced transition to secondary and introduced to the drop in areas long before they leave primary and actively encouraged to use them. It's one of they ways they are supported.

Good point! This it what it's really  for- not the ludicrous scenarios our parents  quote it at us for. All children have rights and that can't be taken away- so we have a responsibility to ensure they experience their rights, if bullying is swept under the carpet then we aren't enabling children in o experience their rights.

(I'm in charge of rights education in my school, I know what it's all about and it's a powerful tool,)
