Concerned Parents started this petition to Langley Park Learning Trust

Our daughter has been at her primary school since 2016. Over the last three years, she has experienced varying degrees of bullying. It has now reached the point where she is suffering both mentally and emotionally. 

We don't want what was happening to our daughter to happen to any other child at our school. We are glad to report that our situation has now been resolved to our satisfaction, but we want to ensure that long term changes are made by the Trust to ensure this never happens to any of our children again which is the reason for this Petition.  

It is not intended to cause alarm. Not every child or class has experienced these issues at the school. There are policies and procedures, a new Head Teacher and Chair of Governors in place to deal with individual incidents. But for those of us who have experienced similar incidents over a prolonged period, this points to a larger problem, which needs to be acknowledged and resolved by the Trust.

Please rest assured that this is not a petition to single out individual children for their negative behaviours. Rather, we feel it is the schools' responsibility to identify acceptable behaviours, set and uphold clear boundaries and follow some of the key values of our school: Respect, Empathy and Unity.

In conjunction with several parents/carers within our school community, we would like to Petition the Trust to:

  • Engage an Anti-Bullying Company to deliver a programme to children. The school community is willing to raise funds to facilitate this.
  • Group discussions for staff, parents and children scheduled throughout the academic year to reinforce the schools messaging around our values and upholding the behavioural policy.
  • Take actionable steps for the children impacted by this behaviour to feel safe and regain the trust that when negative behaviour is reported it doesn't happen again. 
  • Communicate with parents/carers how the school is implementing a Zero-Tolerance policy regarding bullying or any form of physical violence. 

The school is aware of the petition. They do not endorse this course of action and prefer that any communication come directly from the school to parents. 

We will forward your signatures/comments to the Trust and our local council in an effort to create a positive change for our school by Friday 10th May 2019.
