A mother has turned to the public for help after her seven-year-old son was bullied so badly at school he ended up in hospital. 

UK mother Laney Babyh created Facebook page 'Justice for Jak' to raise awareness after her son had "been whipped with skipping ropes, stabbed with a pencil, scratched, punched , called names, stabbed with paper clips, hit around the face with a tennis racket" - all allegedly by one child over a school term. 

"But the latest incident on the 23/03/17 the bully was hitting my son in school and pushed him so hard he hit his head on a metal pole," Ms Babyh wrote.

"The school did not give him a head injury letter or even a cold compress." 

She says she rushed Jak to hospital, when the lump on his head "doubled in size" and continued to bleed. The hospital administered the boy antibiotics to clear up the infection that he'd caught from the wound, The Mirror reported.

After the lump continued to grow, his worried mother returned him hospital where he underwent an operation. He has since had surgery to drain the infection from his head.

Ms Babyh wrote on Facebook that neither the school in Telford, nor the local police, have done anything to help. In a letter, the school even referred to it as a "minor injury".

Jak ended up hiding in the toilet at his own birthday party, the noise too much to handle because of his concussion.

"My son has been in a hospital bed for six days, not once has the bully missed a break time or received any punishment!!!!" she wrote. 

A crowd funding campaign has been launched by member of the public, Jo Chattell, who wanted to raise NZD$600 to help send the little boy to Disneyland, to make up for missing his own birthday party. 

So far the campaign has raised almost NZD$6000 from members of the public, who say they are outraged at the lack of action taken by the school.
