Our expert says:
This is a sadly common situation, and any competent teacher ought to spot it and stop it promptly. But many seem to be insensitive and don't know how to impose simple discipline as it extends to not tormenting other kids.
Good suggestions all round, from other readers. DO have a word with the principal and the teacher, as they ought to be taking broad measures to discourage bullying. Also consider confidence boosting methods for your child, which might even include some martial arts classes.
And chat about it with your child, and brainstorm responses that she could try that might be helpful - including creative ways to ignore the bullies or to show that she finds them boring.
