She said Stop It – Tues 21st Oct 2014

By | October 21, 2014

Yesterday’s blog referred to something that D had mentioned, that someone had touched her inappropriately twice.

I didn’t go into – and won’t be going into massive – detail to protect the individuals but let’s just say I knew it was something that needed to be raised with school this morning.

Which I did.

They have acted extremely quickly today, talking to D, talking to the other child, talking to parents and then updating me, all before the end of school today.

It transpired that whilst there had indeed been an incident, the intent wasn’t what it could have been. Which is a relief.

There has been an alert form completed and if similar happens again, the form will be referred to.

Regular readers of my blogs will be aware that D lacks confidence when it comes to dealing with any issues that could be classed as confrontational/anything that she perceives could “get her into trouble”. She would bottle up any negative emotions and then let them flood out as soon as she saw me, then tell me about it. She still does this, over what could be perceived at the mildest things

BUT

Yesterday she told the other child to stop it, after it happened the second time. She knew that it was wrong.

I’m very proud of her.

Obviously it would have been even better if D had told a staff member as soon as it happened, this is something that still needs to be worked on, to get that confidence increased but I am relieved that she had the perception to say “stop” and that she told me, albeit a good few hours later.

I’m grateful that the school listened and acted on it today too.

Sorry to hear this happened, but such a relief that the school dealt with it so quickly and that D had the strength to speak up and say ‘stop’.

I’m so glad this issue was sorted so quickly. This is one of my biggest fears, especially since we are non-verbal. I have had nightmares about it. Well done D for saying no and telling your mum #SSAmazingAchievements

Thank you, it was a huge relief that procedures sorted it out extremely quickly and that she stood up for herself. It is an ongoing worry.
