My daughter is 11 years old and is struggling 5 weeks into secondary school with certain girls bullying her. Eve has alwaya been a tom boy however the only difference to her uniform is she wears trousers and not a skirt. Peers have asked if she is transgender if she is a boy or a girl when they already know. Today in french the particular children when talking to eve regerred to her as male in french oral practice. They have also contacted her via watts app taken a screen shot of her profile pictire and sent it to her with vomiting emojis. This is just a very small snippet of what has happened and i would like some advice on thing's i can say ro eve to help her.

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. Maybe your daughter could block these people on her from sending her these messages. We suggest that you obtain a copy of the school's anti-bullying policy and their complaints policy, both of which they are required to provide you with by law, and go to the school with these issues following the guidelines in the policies. You may find it helpful to read our articles on general bullying advice, bullying at school and advice for parents. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at asuk@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.

Hi Sazblack, so sorry to hear about your daughter. My son is also in Yr 7 and he has long hair, so gets called a girl a lot, is asked if he's gay, etc. In fact, he even had a teacher say, You can't be a boy because boys don't have long hair. ðŸ˜’ This kind of thing has been going on for a couple of years, so he's learnt to deal with it. He jokes back, or just says, yes, I'm a girl, what does it look like? or similar. He basically shows he doesn't care what they say. And that seems to stop them. How about helping your daughter to find really cool female role models who are tomboys or similar? Some of the England women's football team, for example. 
With the social media, that's a lot more complicated. But schools always have policies and this on their websites. Though your daughter may not want you to, I would talk to her tutor about what's going on and ask them what they can do, especially if you're armed with their policy on social media and/or bullying. Good luck
