So much for Soham Village College’s no bullying policy - it didn’t deal with my issues

SOHAM Village College says children are great in class and out. Not from my point.

My child has suffered really badly there with being bullied by girls. So much for the no bullying policy.

We have had many meetings with the school, but to no avail, so we went to police. They were some help.

We felt fobbed off by the school: “Oh well, your girl can go in the hub at break times if she feels things are getting out of hand.”

Why should my child be punished? “Oh, because one of the girls is an A* student.”

A total lack of concern.

I have two boys going up to secondary school this year - they won’t be going to Soham now.

I know many parents with the same concerns.
