Here are your views on our top read stories online this week.

In Trowbridge, a father claimed that the Clarendon Academy was trying to move his son who he says is being bullied, to another school.

Marcus Neal claimed Ealy, 11, pictured, has been attacked several times by other pupils since starting at the school last September.

Amy Wyatt: The school are trying to get the child to leave the school because of ‘bad behaviour’ or the school are trying to move the child to a different (they deem more suitable) placement in the trust? It concerns me that the father sees specialist placements as places ‘naughty children’ go, as opposed to places where children with SEN who struggle in mainstream go. It doesn’t sound like the child is enjoying his time at Clarendon so what purpose is fighting to keep him there serving?

Stephen Brown: My experience with Clarendon Academy is that they jump on bullies like a ton of bricks. By far, one of the best schools in the area - and extremely well managed. I have always found Clarendon to be proactive and very inviting (as far as parents are concerned) when it comes to resolving issues. The headmaster and his team always offer one on one dialogue and do not hide behind emails etc. Hugely impressed with Clarendon at the moment.

KayleighLou Morris: I was bullied at Clarendon about 12 years ago, the school did nothing for ages. In the end my parents had to demand that I got moved to the other side of the year (not sure if they still split the years into two groups). Even then they were trying to say there was no room for one pupil to move to the other group. Its so sad to read that they are still doing nothing about bullying, its definitely got worse since i left school and i dread to think what it will be like when my daughter goes to secondary school. Bullying is one memory of school which stays with you for life and it should definitely be dealth with as soon as they are notified.

Tara T Dunnill: Kingdown are better equipped for the needs of SEN or kids just struggling in school full stop. They picked up on severe dyslexia in 2 weeks, that Clarendon dismissed and said wasn’t the case for three years. Sounds like a fresh start in a better equipped school is actually what the lad needs and may make him happier

Prince Philip’s death sparked a period of national mourning in the UK and across the world, as the Queen’s husband of more than 70 years passed away at the age of 99. Readers, when asked, said his death should not mark a future bank holiday. They also recalled their own memories of the Duke.

Joseph Bidwell: Someone has died and all the country is worried about is if they are going to get a day off! Have some respect this is someone’s father, grandfather, husband seriously have some respect.

Joanne Thompson: No because it’s not going to be a state funeral

Michael Pelling: It is a Saturday and most banks are closed anyway!

Philip Missen: I remember the Duke visiting the Avon Rubber factory in Melksham. He flew a helicopter and it landed on a specially constructed helipad near the weir. I was watching from the other side of the river. Must have been in the early 1960s

Christopher Maidment: You learn something new everyday. Didn’t know he used to live in Wiltshire. Rip. God save our Queen.

In Warminster, campaigners claimed that a proposed new housing development could result in a loss of dark sky at night. They also say plans to build 28 new homes at Damask Way could pose a major threat to local wildlife.

Tim Jennings: There are few places in the UK where there is a properly dark sky anyway.

Michael Pearce: Same old whinging NIMBYs it always seems fine for them to build their houses where they want but God forbid anybody else wanting the same.

Chris Dunn: I wonder, who’s dark sky or nice view or unique habitat their houses took from someone when they were built?

Thomas Husband: God forbid anyone should want to get on the property ladder, rather than forking out thousands in rent that they’ll never see again. Typical case of “I’m alright, Jack”.
