Hi bromley mum,
Sorry- Nikki's mum- if I sound rather bitter!
Yes the bullying was reported. Eventually DD had to move class and try and fit in again with girls that had already formed their friendship groups- not very easy.But, to reach that stage it took 6 months after DD could not take it anymore( I had already taken her out of school for a week to go away with her father for a break- cost me £900 for a last minute flight).
Even took this to the HT, this time last year. She said she would talk to some a of the girls involved and write to us. Her letter never materialised!
Well, we have put this all behind us now and DD has turned from a bubbly, happy-go-lucky girl to being rather cynical and wary of people. Good thing or bad?- A lesson in life I would say.
Anyway DD has gained a place at St Olave's for the 6th form- better at sciences there and better discipline- to start Sept 2012. Quite a few of her year friends are also going, so she is happy about that and really can't wait to start.
Good luck with your choice Nikki's mum.
