“School staff should investigate the bullying immediately.” The administration should investigate a parent’s concerns and then inform the parents about their plans to remedy the situation. “School staff should never have a joint meeting with your child and the child who bullied them.”. Parents are doing their best to hold schools accountable for their children’s safety. It is important to take steps to resolve the issue to the best of your ability, but if your child has been bullied and you think school officials are not listening to your or taking your claims seriously, you may need to consider alternative action.
It is therefore harassment-related student bullying that when left unchecked by school officials, poses the greatest legal risk. In the Leadership Insider article “School Liability for Bullying & Harassment,” article authors Seamus Boyce and Andrew Manna explain that if schools face the following five circumstances, they are legally liable for peer harassmen. If your child is being bullied, you can take the following actions: Become an active listener.
It is extremely important that you talk with your child each day and ask open-ended questions throughout the school week. Often part of the challenge is getting your child to open up, so being an active listener will go a long way. Bullying frequently happens out of school and is often a source of trouble between neighbours and divides roughly 50:50 into school bullies and serious problems with local children.
If these children are pupils at the same school as your child then it’s sensible to warn the school that trouble at home could spill over into school. Bullying at school. All schools have a responsibility to take reasonable steps to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of their staff and students.
This includes taking steps to support students who are being bullied by their peers. This can include being pulled by classmates outside of school hours or off school property e.g. being cyber bullied. If other students have bullied or hurt your child at school, learn when you can sue the school for negligent supervision or violation of laws prohibiting discrimination, including harassment based on sex, ethnicity, or disability. Although schools are not legally responsible for bullying that takes place outside of the school, under the Education and Inspection Act 2006 a school’s behaviour policy can include, as far as is reasonable, measures to regulate behaviour outside school premises when pupils are not in the charge or control of members of staff.
Bullying among school-aged children is widely regarded as an epidemic problem in the United States. If there were an easy solution to the problem, it would have been suggested and implemented long. Understandably, children who are being bullied are often fearful and worry that any action will worsen the problem. The solution is to make a parental decision to talk to the school.
A consistent and co-operative approach by both the home and school is important. You can always let your child know later what actions you have taken.
