    Following this BBC article....

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-46047517

    8 staff...not 1, eight.

    The council narrative quoted really irks me.

    Lets ignore the problem and blame the staff seems to be the council's attitude.

    When you see all the signs up in council offices about police will be called to violence or threatening behaviour.

    But when it is teachers getting assaulted somehow it is different?

    This is just weird. Why isn’t protecting your employees of the first importance? What about the other children too?

    I hope all 11 teachers resign. Vote with their feet, after such appalling treatment by the school and council.

    Ironic that just when the Govt are trying to reduce student exclusions in some schools - we hear of teachers refusing some students. Why can't the ht in some schools offer to teach challenging students ?:rolleyes:

    My interim head last summer was head hunted to work in a school where he would have been advised to wear a stab vest to parents' evenings. He politely turned them down, why would anyone say yes?
