Hi  im new here in a bit of a pickle. My 8 year old daughter is having issues at school with a couple of girls. Ive spoken to the school as my daughter has not been wanting to go in. They have said they will monitor etc etc. I wonder what i can do to try and make it easier. 

Thanks in advance
Hi, I understand that this is a difficult situation. We suggest that you obtain the school's anti-bullying policy and their complaints policy, which they are required to provide you with by law, and refer to them when discussing the situation with the school. Talk to your daughter, reassure her, boost her confidence. Does she have a friend group? If she does then she can stick with them when these girls bother her.
