    Default School advice needed..

    I know.. more advice haha..

    Ok I have such a dilemna..

    Agnes is 8 and in year 2 in a public school, about 25 mins drive from us.
    She is there because we moved house and she is enrolled in Ronalds private school for next year.

    In the last week of last term, Agnes came home in tears saying the teacher hit her. I spoke to the teacher and she denied it.. Agnes swears it happened..

    The teacher and Agnes had had so many issues with the teacher calling her names , ugly and all kinds of things.. it kind of got good for awhile and has now turned worse.

    So we called Ronalds school to see if we could move her for the last term but there is NO room!!!

    Ok.. so I feel ill thinking of sending her back.. and we have a great school across the road..

    But Agnes is moving schools next year already.. so it would be one term..

    is she better with the devil she knows..

    I have no idea what would be best for her..

    and am open to all advice.

    Is there an option of her staying at the school she is already at, but going into a different classroom?

    What is the school across the road like? Maybe check it out she might stay on there if she is happy and settles in well.
    Otherwise I'm not sure it's a tricky one.

    That would be the best idea if you can.

    I would move her before I sent her into a classroom with a teacher that has hit her.

    Did you make a formal complaint about hitting?

    Yes that would have been my first choice too.

    I broached it with Agnes and she is desperate to leave.. but.. i am cautious as to how it will affect her.

    Will tell you how it happened..

    Agnes was in classroom with teacher and making pottery, she asked Agnes to stop as she was slow.. and she didnt stop so the teacher smacked her arm and squashed the pottery.

    Then Agnes told another teacher and this teacher went and spoke to the hitting teacher..

    When Agnes went back to class, she was addressed in front of the whole class and the teacher asked her why she lied and did she lie as she was upset , about the pottery being squashed... this means that no kids wanted to say what they saw... suck!

    I wrote to the principal and the teacher and.. they kind of just brushed it, saying that she didnt hit her and .. thats it..

    Agnes swears it did.

    Agnes is scared of her teacher, like she freaks out if she does not have her homework or her hat.. like she screams.. as she is scared of the teacher..


    I am just a bit at a loss.. and have somuch going on.. but want the best for agnes.

    What was the outcome of the 'hitting' incident or the abusive comments to you child?
    I'd be very surprised if the school left it as a he said, she said outcome.
    No way my child would be in a classroom of a teacher I believed hit and verbally abused my child. This is if I truly believed my child.

    I believe calling a child stupid is verbally abusive in most situations.

    So in your situation I would be moving her to the school across the road for the one term.
