The relationship of a child with peers does not always develop well, especially during adolescence. If a child is attacked by classmates, the parents can make a difference.
Medical and law enforcement assistance
Whatever the first emotions of the parents, if there is a fight at school, first of all, you need to pay all your attention to the child. With the help of a cursory examination, it is impossible to reveal the presence of internal injuries and injuries, therefore, even with a couple of bruises and abrasions, it is better to seek qualified medical help.
A school health worker should be called in for an initial examination. If this is not possible, and the severity of the injuries inflicted is outwardly high enough, you need to call an ambulance.
If a child is beaten at school, parents tend to do their best to punish the offender. For further proceedings, it is necessary to draw up an act of what happened, indicating the time, date, as well as the participants and the consequences of the incident. The act is certified by several representatives of the school staff.
In situations where the school's reputation is at risk, one can encounter obstacles from the leadership of the educational institution and the lack of any assistance in the resolution of such cases. If the school staff refuse to write and certify the act, you can contact the police and call a law enforcement representative directly to the school at the scene of the crime. Sometimes this option works, even if you just voice it.
After receiving the act, you need to contact the nearest hospital department or emergency room for a more thorough examination. The presence of beatings must also be recorded there. After that, the parents will have to decide what kind of punishment they expect for the hooligans.
Compensation and liability
In order to receive compensation for moral and physical harm, it is enough to go to court with a statement. If the parents of the abuser are adequate people, you can avoid litigation - perhaps you should first discuss this issue with them. In order for the offender to be criminally liable, a complaint should be filed with the police.
According to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, persons who have reached the age of 16 are responsible for their actions, if the health of the victim is slightly damaged, and 14 years old - if the health of the victim is moderately severe, or severe. It should be borne in mind that the school management and the teacher who supervised the children will also be responsible for beating a child at school if it happened during the educational process or during any other time the child was at school under the supervision of a teacher.
