Mrs Golledge then went on to describe how Sophia had stopped eating and was sick up to 20 times an hour in the night because of the emotional turmoil she was going through at the hands of her ‘best friend’.

‘This is my child who has been in and out of hospital for countless trips due to being so sick with anxiety,’ she wrote.

‘This is my child who was told off for “telling tales at school”. This is my child who has been mocked on social media by the bully’s parents for just having such a pure heart.

‘This is my child who when addressing the issues with her school we were told ‘It’s just 6 year olds being 6 year olds.’
