Threat to children safety in schools

Hi Mommies & Daddies,
I earnestly seek your advise for the incident below:
Yesterday what happened to my 09 years old daughter during school hours has left me shattered & exasperated. It was really painful & worry some.
My daughter Shiney Verma studies in one of the renowned school of Gurgaon, Amity International School - 46. The school is privileged to having good standard of education, best quality teachers and committed staff, however, this deems doubtful after what my daughter Shiney faced.
In the morning hours while playing in the School playground yesterday with other kids, she fell due to plenty of stones on the ground and incurred 3 broken bones in her left hand. This could be an accident which is not what I intend to share here but what happened after that is beyond what any parent could imagine. Irony is that when my child reported this to the coordinator. Just after Shiney told teachers about sheer pain in her hands, instead of counseling her and arranging medical support , the teacher bashed her with sarcastic comments and compelled her to accept responsibility of the injury before disclosing it to parents.
She forced her to accept that she fell on the ground due to her own fault (crossed legs). On top of that they argued & ended up saying that why only you (My daughter) fell on the ground and why not other kids have fallen to injury, why don’t I see the stone that you toppled over etc. My daughter was already hurt physically and due to the offensively impolite or discourteous nature of school staff she was going through mental trauma too.
They didn't even bother to inform us whatever happened to her. Late after I just got a single call from School’s medical room that “your child fell on the ground, come down to take her to see the doctor.
In a rush when my husband reached the school, he was so disappointed to see that there was not a single teacher to take responsibility of my child when she was going through physical & mental pain all alone. What if she would have fallen unconscious due to pain and internal bleeding. Is this what we expect from teachers when sending our kids to school, no, absolutely not.
This is a big deception with our trust.
When we raised our concern to the school authority, the school teacher reverted all with the attitude ,"I don't know" , " It is your daughter's fault".
Do you really agree it is our kids fault and schools are not at all bothered about their safety.
We are really bumped.
After this incident I'd worry about leaving my kids in school, And the way school staff reacted made me think twice to send her back again in the school.
Because after this teachers would probably treat them different, especially after this noise.
Is there no question, that the teachers owe the students safety.
Looking for your guidance on how may this issue be addressed going forward.
Thank you so much in anticipation...
