AN eight-year-old boy was taken to hospital after allegedly being kicked in the stomach by school bullies, The Evening Star can reveal today.

Felixstowe police are carrying out an investigation after it was reported the boy, whose parents do not want him to be named, was attacked while at his school's end of term disco.

His parents have held meetings with the boy's school, Langer Primary, where the attack was alleged to have taken place on Friday. They have also spoken with the education authority in a bid to stop bullies from tormenting their child.

The father said his son had to endure a year of verbal taunts and physical attacks and said enough is enough and has demanded it stops.

He said he would not be satisfied until he was given a plausible excuse by the school as to how the alleged bullying had taken place and said he wants to see the bullies given some form of detention.

The father from Felixstowe said that as far as he was concerned when he drops his child off at school in the morning it should be reasonable to expect that his young boy would be safe and protected from such violent behaviour.

He had reported many of the previous bullying incidents to the police and hoped action would be taken.

David Leney, head teacher at the school on Langer Road, said: "The most important thing is that the police are looking in to the matter."

The head said he would not like to comment at this stage as he did not want to interfere with the on-going police investigation.

A spokesperson for the police said they were working with the relevant agencies and parties involved to investigate the incident.
