Question about Computers & Internet
If your son's school takes the problem of bullying seriously they will be concerned about it both on and off school premises and will have a tried and tested process in place to tackle it which will be approved by the school governors, the local education authority, the local police and the parent teacher association.
Bullying is often a case of particularly bad manners by kids who don't know being well mannered goes further than please or thank you at the dinner table. Other kids bully because of peer pressure or prestige and others because they themselves are bullied or have a bully as a role model. Sometimes a bully is just a nasty kid with a nasty nature.
If you are involved with the PTA, initial advice may be found there. Schools have a habit of down-playing the problem fearing bad publicity and if that is the case and the head teacher or principal is a wannabe politician who likes to sit on his hands, if you talk to him your complaint is likely to be misplaced. Certainly the Principal should be informed but being too discreet would probably not be advisable. Your son's teacher should be informed and a few selected parents and members of the PTA in addition.
If your son is suffering physical bullying, it is a criminal assault and while not wanting to give a young bully a criminal record, if it takes place outside of school your local police officer might arrange to witness an incident and then read the riot act.
If your son is suffering psychological bullying it is easily hidden and easily denied and difficult to prove without independent witnesses and details of incidents. In this case you might need to become spy and detective.
