Regrettably, bullying is a reality for many students in school, although it shouldn’t be. While most issues can be resolved through open communication with the school, occasionally the involvement of Education Lawyers becomes necessary.
In situations where parents find themselves unable to address bullying concerns independently, seeking an external perspective can be valuable. Our Education Lawyers offer advice and guidance, approaching the matter impartially.
In the case of state schools, we can leverage the potential for Judicial Review if they lack or fail to implement an impactful anti-bullying policy. Unfortunately, bullying is frequently associated with ‘protected characteristics’ such as race, religion, or disability. Drawing on our expertise in these domains, we can advocate for action that benefits the victim.
With extensive experience in handling bullying cases in both state and independent schools, we can present the situation in a manner that prompts schools to take necessary actions, especially when previous efforts have proven unsuccessful.
