Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Is she 11 or 10?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is 11 and has done this to other kids in the school the school has informed social services and suspension for a weak but I don't want her anywhere near the school again
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
You could report it to the police although the practical reality is that she is unlikely to be prosecuted.She is only just over the age of criminal responsibility and the police do not generally pursue those under 13. They may well make a referral to social services instead.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
It is possible to complain to the school. Whether they would exclude her is another matter.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
in truth, quite unlikely. Headmasters are usually slow to exclude especially in cases where there has not been time to try other forms of intervention.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
If she has inappropriate sexual knowledge for a child of 11 though then it would seem to be a matter for social services as they may well have an interest in where she came by that knowledge.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
You can always complain to the Board of Governors or the local authority whichever applies. It may not make any difference but it is an option.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo

No intervention from perents ie. No boundaries set ? I feel sorry for the girl. But my doughter is he'll bent on going to the police. If I ask for all the conversation in wrighting between school and social services could I get it ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
No. It would be protected by confidentiality. They won't even tell you what was said although they might tell you that there was a referral.

No. A court would have no control over it.It is the for the school.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
I must admit that it is not likely that such a young child would be expelled.
