I don't now why she did it so us my daughter!i would like just to now as parent what should i do on this situation?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 3 years ago.
It doesn't make a huge amount of sense at the moment?

If the allegation is that this was an act of violence towards her then the school could take action against her. Clearly they are saying they cannot here because they cannot be sure what happened. Obviously they are only able to punish a child if they can be reasonably sure that they were to blame.

You could complain about that decision. If there is any evidence that she was the aggressor then you can put that before them. Essentially though you have to persuade them that their view that they cannot be sure of her guilt is wrong.

You can also complain to the local authority but you have a similar problem there.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Hi Jo
I agree,because they can't be sure what happened they can only punish that girl and us is no evidence to that situation is nothing I really can do!just wait and see and make sure they do what they say to keep them separate !thank u oksana

Yes, I agree.

Sadly if they can't say what happened then neither girl can be punished.

No problem and all the best.
