Thanks so much for the replies. I have read through so many bully policies..from local schools to dept edu etc, but no where does it ever mention the requirment of the school to notify parents..let alone an obligation to report injury. I have spoken to other schools and posed the simple question "Do you advise parents if their child is injured, especially in the case of a bullying incident?". The responses were, "of course" and "thats a no brainer". What IS consistantly mentioned, is parents and schools working together, and the need for the parents to notify the school. It seems in this case the policy was actioned for the bully, an interview with his parent and behavior managment etc, a threat of suspension, (info from my daughter thro school.friends etc) just no contact or thought to the victim or notifying the family or any followup whatsoever on that side. I was shocked enough originally in the first week when I recieved no contact, and so started looking onto other schools. I have her enrolled in another now, so options were open to leave if they didnt respond appropriately. I was hoping and expected, the school would get around to doing the right thing, maybe after diciplineing the bully or the several talks I heard they managed with "his" parent. After finding out yesterday that her own teacher was unaware..Im really wanting to take this as far as I can now. I guess I just needed reassurance that others find this appalling too.
