A school girl was found hanged in her school’s toilets after telling her mum and boyfriend bullies told her to “go back to your own country”.
16 year old Dagmara Przybysz,from Poland said girls at school had called her a “stupid Pole” in the days before her death at Pool Academy near Redruth, Cornwall.
Teachers took 90 minutes to find Dagmara after she went missing from class.
They also failed to perform CPR despite being told to by a 999 call handler, and didn’t record incidents she reported to staff as bullying.
Before her death,she was also looking forward to her Year 11 prom and had gone shopping for a dress.
In the days before her death, Dagmara sent boyfriend Lewis Simpson a message saying:
“Not the best day at school, people saying things about me because I am from Poland. I don’t even know their names.’”
Her mum Ewelina said in a statement her daughter was a ”very beautiful lady”, got on better with boys and most of her friends, including her boyfriend, went to another school.
She said her daughter had been having a problem with one girl who had ”called Dagmara names”
Mrs Przybysz said……
“‘I don’t know exactly what was said.This incident occurred only a few days before Dagmara passed away… I don’t know whether these incidents were racist in nature; however, I can say that on several occasions she overheard comments such as ‘stupid Pole’.’”We think the biggest problem for Dagmara was not racism, but bullying.”
