The father of a ten year old primary pupil has won the first stage of legal action against a school for failing to discipline a bully, The Daily Telegraph reports (p8).

In the high court, Justice Forbes ruled the incident at a Basingstoke school was an 'appropriate case' for judicial review.

The boy at the centre of the case was given a 'Chinese burn' on his arm, and the father claims the bullying was not dealt with firmly enough by the schools' head.

It is the first of 10 cases being prepared by lawyers against schools accused of being too soft on bullies.
