Olympic diver Tom says he's not been to school since before Easter because he's being bullied. Tom said he's had problems since last year's Olympics in Beijing. "Everyone that you walk past has a little dig at you". He says the bullying "isn't high-level", but that "everyone in the school" is doing it. Tom's dad, Rob Daley, says things have started to get out of hand. He's said he's thinking about moving his son to another school because he's worried the bullying could start to affect Tom's performance on the diving board. Earlier this week the 14-year-old from Plymouth won silver at the World Series in Sheffield. Tom's college says its policy was to deal firmly with bullying, and that the diver's star status has led to some students acting in an immature way towards him.
