I had a child hit me twice while working today so I had the TA remove him from the classroom and take him to the head teacher. I am not there to be abused, particularly given my agencies policy does not allow me to touch a child (therefore I would have been unable to restrain him if he did it again). The Senco came in to speak to me, basically asked if I was okay and what happened because that child "doesn't normally behave like that". I explained to her that I had asked the child twice to either put away his paper (that he was clearly waiting to throw), or put it in the bin. He refused to do this so I went to pick it up off the desk in front of him and he hit me twice. I am put out about this for three reasons: 1) I felt that what she said was suggesting that it must have been my fault. 2) The head teacher, who was supposed to be dealing with it, did not speak to me once aboout the incident despite my seeing her around the school on a number of occasions. 3) I was not made aware of the consequences that this boy is facing. While I obviously do not have a right to know, I would like to know it is being treated seriously before he does it to someone else. Am I being unreasonable? I am feeling quite angry, not towards the child particularly, but because I was assalted, was questioned quite insultingly about it, and I don't know if it has been dealt with properly (I would have expected some follow up).
