(East London)

My granddaughter is 12 she was only in her new school for 8 months when a group of girls started to bully her because of her behaviour, she was bullied on line through texts her life was a misery my daughter went to the school and asked that the matter be resolved the bullies parents were called to the school to be interviewed with their children but the head seemed intimidated by them and my granddaughter was made to sit in a room every break time reading while the bullies all played outside in the playground my daughter got so angry as time went on and so did the bullying she took her out of school and refused to send her back she was delighted when she found a school with a space for her but at the interview the headmistress changed her mind when she realised she had ADHD she never said anything about it then but she cancelled the walk round the following week and was never available to answer the phone we're now in the six weeks hols and she has no school to go to can they turn her away even though this is a medical condition? or should we appeal it seems so unjust.

Discrimination?
by: Anonymous

The school may be discriminating against your grand daughter and that is a legal issue. Can you contact the education department and ask them to look into the issue for you? I have a son with ADHD and am familiar with the types of uneducated attitudes that exist. If the school are discriminating against your grand daughter then I suspect they are not the best school for her anyway.
