Hi would be grateful for your thoughts- I'm extremely worried about a boy in my Year 4 class who is being bullied by pretty much all the kids in KS2.He has various special needs, which make socialising very difficult for him. There are a few 'ring leaders' (although very little hard evidence, just the word of other kids) and the rest turn their back on him, as it's 'uncool.' to be near him. I see it as a very serious problem and find it agonising to watch, but feel that , as I'm only a few years into the job, I don't really know what the protocol should be. There doesn't seem to be a precedent that anyone can recall. The Head has spoken to the year group, so have other members of SMT, but the hatred/dislike/amusement at his failure, whatever it is, is so deeply ingrained that nothing has changed. I'd be very grateful if anyone could let me know what they would do in this situation, then I may have some ideas to tentatively suggest.Thanks for any help. Have also posted this in HT board, but maybe this was not appropriate.
