I was very impressed with the professionalism of the service and literature and extremely grateful for the advice provided. In our case, the [Enquire] Helpline helped to secure a positive outcome from the local authority for our child, together with a commitment to the revision of the authority’s policy.
My child is being bullied in school. What can I do?
If your child is being bullied and this is affecting their attendance at school or their ability to benefit from their education, then they might require additional support to help them return to school or support them with their learning. If you think your child is being bullied, you should advise your child to tell their teacher and try to speak to the teacher yourself. If you are not happy with the response, you can ask for a meeting with the head teacher to discuss the issue further. If there is still a problem, you can contact the education authority. All schools should have an anti-bullying policy and you have the right to ask to see your school’s policy.
