PLEASE READ SIGN AND SHARE (the failing to address bullying in schools increases the rate of bullying which increases the rate of victims commiting suicide as a result of bullying).  I am very grateful for all your support I would love it if you could put a reason for signing it.  Thank you and lets make a change! 

This is a petition to change the ways in which schools handle the issue of bullying. I am passionate about this as both my daughters have experienced bullying as well as children I know. My daughter's best friend committed suicide because of bullying and both my daughters were victims of bullying which had a detrimental affect on their wellbeing, from self harming to being physically attacked by bullies all because the school failed to safeguard them, support them and take the situation seriously.  My older daughter experienced bullying which included indirect and direct discrimination because of her special needs which wasn't just from kids in her school but also her Spanish teacher.  The local authority had to get involved, but nothing was really done about it.

If schools use the correct procedures by supporting and protecting the victims of bullying this will reduce the rate of bullying in schools.  

This petition is to highlight how the parents and their children do not get the support they need when the child is being bullied. The child's voice is not heard and in some cases the bullies seem to get more support than the victim.The more people that speak out for a change the better. Too many children are suffering and have even taken their own lives as a result of bullying. Parents that report their child being a victim of bullying to the school do not receive any kind of support that is required. Worst of all the bullying continues and may even get worse some results in the victim commiting suicide 

My daughter's school is an example of how the school system does not protect victims of bullying. My younger daughter who suffers from Autism and has a ECHP plan was physically attacked by 5 girls who are students from the same school as her that were bullying her for a year.  The school was aware of the ongoing bullying but did nothing despite my daughter reporting the bullying to the school and given personal statements.  Instead of trying to support my daughter, the victim, I feel support was given to the bullies even after my daughter got physically attacked. This could of been prevented if the school had taken this bullying seriously in the first place.  My daughter has previously been followed home by these bullies and on the same day she got physically attacked the bullies were verbally abusing her in school and this was reported to the teachers. 

The whole thing has affected my daughter's mental wellbeing and she had to be taken out of the school during an important time (mock exams) as she couldn't attend because the bullies were still allowed to go to school whilst the school carried out their investigation. Despite the fact that every time my daughter was bullied she reported it to the teachers and even on the same day she got attacked nothing was done to address the bullies and their actions.  In many cases schools have come across to overlook this very important issue until it's too late and they seem to be more concerned about their Ofsted report.

IMAGINE IF THIS WAS YOUR CHILD...

Calling on the educational board and governers to do something.  Bring justice to the victim and proper repercussions to the bullies, why should the victim suffer and the bullies just get away with it. 

CAN WE SAY OFSTED WHO REGULATES THESES SCHOOLS AND GIVES THE SCHOOLS THEIR REPORT ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM ASWELL.  WHAT ARE ALL THESE PROFESSIONALS DOING TO SAFEGUARD OUR CHILDREN THAT ARE GETTING BULLIED?  THEY HAVE A DUTY OF CARE TO PROTECT AND LEGAISATIONS, POLICY AND PROCEDURES THEY HAVE TO FOLLOW WHICH THEY BREACH, SHOULDNT THEY BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE?
