I'm sure I can get some answers from wise grans on here. And apologies for a long rambling post.
My DGD now aged 7 has had trouble with one boy in her class since Year 1. At first it seemed as if they were good friends but he very soon became controlling, dragging her around by the wrist, kissing her against her will and generally being nasty. My daughter has photographic evidence of bruising he caused on her arm but unfortunately it was the day before half term so was unable to follow that up immediately. They were Mary and Joseph in the school nativity and during each rehearsal he refused to hold her hand and whispered horrible things to her causing her to cry before she had to go on stage. The hand holding doesn't matter but to deliberately cause her distress in that situation was very cruel. This and more went on until in Year 2 she developed stress related hives and admitted she was afraid of him. At this point my daughter wrote to the teacher to complain and he immediately moved my DGD to another table and had a talk with the boy concerned. This resulted in his parents coming in to see the teacher after which they told my daughter that the teacher agreed with them that it was my DGDs fault. But when my daughter saw the teacher he vehemently denied this. However the boy then ignored my DGD and all was well. Now they have gone back after lockdown into Year 3 and it is starting again. My daughter did email the teacher before term started asking them not to be placed near each other in class and she replied that she knew the previous history and would keep a watchful eye. But there have already been 2 upsetting incidents in the playground. My daughter doesn't want to get a reputation as a nuisance parent but also of course wants to protect DGD.
Should she complain again or wait to see how things progress?
