I've attached a picture of his arm and I'm sure it's caught on cctv .... deputy head teacher that day said it should never have happened and she allows him to sit there all the time as he's waiting on me and he can see me coming through the glass

Thank you for your question.
This is an assault technically. Have you considered reporting to the police? Have you met with the head teacher?

Thank you for your response. As regards ***** ***** to progress a civil claim, you should be able to find a civil lawyer in your area or ask the Law Society to recommend one.
