We moved area and had no choice other than change my 7 years old son to our now local school. He had been at his old school since nursery and was very popular with teachers, pupils etc and he had many close friends, he was very happy.
His new school has much better offsted reports and it is known to be the most sort after school in this area. So he started in September, so we're 9 weeks in now. Dispite my sons friendly, positive approach he hasn't been able to make friends with any of the boys, so he has become friends with a friendship circle of girls. However one girl is being very hostile towards him, she keeps playing tricks on him which end up with him being left out of the playtime games. So they have a buddy bench for the kids who don't have a playmate, he tells me he regularly sits alone there. I've spoken to his teacher and she confirmed the girl bossy etc. She advised my son to keep away from her. However this then excludes him from playing with anyone. He has come out of school in tears many times, the teacher just says he is too thin ski med and over emotional, I assured her this was not the case at the old school. Anyway on Friday my son told me he had been strung along by this girl all day, she insisted he waited to play tag until her game had finished, so he waited every playtime until he had enough and went to the buddy bench and sobbed, only for his teacher to shout at him in front of the whole playground, asking why he was crying AGAIN. She then took him by the arm and marches him indoors, to shout at him some more, then pushes him back outside telling him to stop  crying and have fun. I'm at a lose as to what to do now. It seems the tea her thinks my son is acting up or she just can't be bothered to involve herself in the playground fall outs. So what should i/we do? It's making me ill seeing my boy so sad all the time when he is such a good boy. Any thoughts or advice would be great.

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting situation. It sounds as though the teacher is being very unfair to your son. We suggest that you obtain a copy of the school's anti-bullying policy and it's complaints policy, both of which they are required to provide you with by law. Complain to the school about how this teacher is treating your son through the avenue laid out in the policy. You may find it helpful to read our articles on general bullying advice, bullying at school and bullying advice for parents. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
