I must also add that it looks like the school did not know how to handle this and concocted the lesser story. There is also the fact that we have not heard any more about the individuals who started this off by tying the girl up, what of them and what about some punishment for this, if they did this we cannot just leave it! I have seen first hand how schools can be running scared if something happens that's a bit uncomfortable, we must not let bullies get away with it we must come down hard on it! we cannot hit them but we can damn well make them see through shame that it is not acceptable in any day and age, children will always push it nothing will change that but if they see that we are not going to tolerate it they will respond one way or the other, school is for learning not for taking out your personal problems on someone else, it's this aspect of school life that cause's most bullying problems,I hope this lady gets her job back, but don't hold your breath!

The parents should have been fully informed of what had happened by the school, This put Carol in a difficult position. It is not right she should loose her job.

Clearly not applicable when the "abuse" is at the hands of other children and is carried out on school premises, in school time, and under the noses of the staff.I sincerely hope this dinner lady takes her employer to court and wins handsomely. On the basis of what I have heard and read so far the school head ought to be ashamed of herself, as should the other members of staff who colluded in the cover up.For exactly whose best interests do they think they were acting? Clearly not those of the victim.

In 1994 a neighbour who was a dinner lady at the local primary school knocked on our door and informed us that our 4 yr old son was regularly being held down by four other pupils while the "ring leader" kicked and punched him. She told us that Teachers had witnessed this but failed to discipline the offenders. When we approached the school they denied the incidents and spent more time trying to uncover our source of informstion. The "ring leader" was the child of an influential school governor (are we getting a theme here?). We removed our two children from the school and spent the next few years trying to get my son to stop acting the class fool in his efforts to be liked.

I hope she goes to a tribunal and wins - as far as I'm concerned, she acted in the childs interests. I'd certainly want to know if any child of mine was goign through such criminal assaults without the school taking any action.Oh, perhaps that's the nail hit on the head; the school is trying to cover it's posterior!
