A TERRIFIED girl has written a letter pleading with bullies: Stop making my life a misery.
Brave Rebecca Scott has suffered at the hands of bullies since the summer.
The pretty nine-year-old has endured name calling and even physical attacks by classmates from her school, Almondbury Junior, in Southfield Road.
Her parents now want an end to the pain caused to their daughter.
News of Rebecca's plight comes after the Examiner yesterday highlighted how bullies are using text messages to terrify their victims.
Now mum Gillian, 34, is hoping the bullies will leave her daughter alone after the little girl penned a heartbreaking letter to her school.
Rebecca's letter also included a disturbing drawing of her own hand covered in cuts and bruises.
Gillian, who has another daughter Katie, four, said: "I was shocked when Rebecca showed me the letter.
"It is the kind of thing you read in the news from kids' diaries after they have been pushed to suicide by bullies. I won't let that happen to my daughter.
"This has been a problem for only a few months, but if you leave these things to grow they can cause a lot of damage.
"Luckily so far Rebecca's schoolwork has not suffered but it is a worry that if it does not stop the problems will mount up.
"The school have been great and are trying to do everything they can to stop these problems.
"But teachers' hands are tied these days and children know they can get away with things that in the past they would not have done."
But Gillian and her husband Philip, of Highlands Avenue, Almondbury, do not want the bullies booted out of school.
"I don't want anyone to miss out on their education. I just want them to understand the pain they have caused," she said.
"Hopefully this will be an end to it and Rebecca can go back to being a happy little girl who enjoyed school.
"Back in the summer Rebecca was attacked and mugged for one of her toys. We got the police involved but because of the age of the children involved there is not much they can do.
"Kids will always argue and fight but when that is over a long period and someone feels victimised it is more serious."
A spokeswoman for the Kirklees Education Authority said the school was working with both parties.
She added: "Schools are always concerned and will attempt to deal with allegations of bullying.
"In this case the school is attempting to mediate between the two parties. Some of these problems have been happening outside school time which makes it a little more difficult to deal with."
