stick with it hun
If your daughter wants you present, if it will make it better for her .. its worth the fight.
I can understand why they may not have the parents of the other child in but i really hope they don't brush your request under the carpet. Very wrong if they do.
I'm thinking about this a lot and how our principal would handle it, bearing their age in mind.
There is no reason that both children need to be in the same room at the same time - I would imagine they would talk to your DD then to the boy in question to ensure that both children have the chance to give their version of events. So, with that in mind I don't see a single good reason that they would have to refuse to allow you to be present.
I understand schools have their protocols but given this is a bit more serious then taking someone else's lunch money or pulling hair, and is potentially notifiable, I would want to be present for any interview. I would think the boy's parents would want to be there too (I know I would want to be if it were my son involved).
I really don't know. Tbh I just assumed they would be spoken to separately. And so far just from the response I got when insisting I be present, I wouldn't be surprised if the boys parents haven't been told whats going on. Honestly its bothering me now, on one hand I feel fiercely protective of my daughter and what to make sure nothing like this happens again and its taken seriously, on the other hand I get the impression that the school doesn't see it as a serious thing and are kind of sweeping it under the rug?
