An unsuccessful appeal from a finding that a local authority was not in breach of its duty to a school pupil by failing to prevent the pupil from being bullied outside school. However, the Court of Appeal recognised that a school might occasionally be in breach of duty for failing to take steps within its power to combat the harmful behaviour of one pupil towards another outside school.
