School bullies at the City of Ely Community College are getting away with their intimidation, threats and taunting while victims are being excluded for defending themselves.
It was recently brought to our attention that a year 7 pupil was relentlessly taunted to the point that the bullied pupil lashed out at the provocateur. In this situation you would have thought that the bully would be firmly reprimanded and possibly excluded, but in this instance the victim was excluded for 5 days even though they told staff what happened and had witnesses. This cannot be right! If someone is bullying you you should tell someone you can trust – a teacher? Bullies find it hard to pick on someone if they know you have someone to support you. Unfortunately, on this occasion they appear to have sided with the bully.
Ely Online is aware of why the individual was bullied but does not want to publicise the circumstances.
As of publication the City of Ely Community College has not commented.
