    I would be emailing the principal to say you are not happy how this was handled and go to someone higher up. They just want to sweep this under the rug..

    Honestly i'd contact the education department and get them invloved. It's amazing how quickly attitudes change, apologies happen, etc when you do so.

    If they have a APRE is it a catholic school? If it is catholic they have their own "education department", sorry I don't know what it is called in QLD. If it is an independent school then I am not sure who "higher up" would be, as they are not managed by the education department. At minimum copy in the senior principal.

    I'm shocked that they blatantly ignored your specific request to be there when they spoke to your DD.

    Yes she did, but in my experience most education departments hate dealing with this stuff and try and handball it back to the school level. So if @lil miss can show even that she sent the principal an email to address her concerns then they will be more likely to deal with it more quickly iykwim?

    I agree, it's a crap state of affairs all round and I am actually appalled and very sus as to why they wouldn't let a mother be present.

    That's really good.
    I just had a thought that if she saw you get too worked up it might get her worked up and reluctant to go to school. It still needs to be dealt with appropriately and heads to roll like a bowling ball in an alley.

    I am absolutely appalled at the schools handling of this. I think it needs to be very formally lodged as a complaint through the school. I can't believe they had both kids in the room at the one time. Your poor dd.
