The HT is merely spouting the same old corporate bullsh_t you would expect from someone in that position. It would be interesting to see the school's Referrals record and the number of Incident Reports raised. At my school Incident Reports are certainly not encouraged but their use has certainly made alleged management do things a bit differently because of pressure put on them by their bosses at council HQ. Personally, since the summer holidays I have been told to "shut up!", "f_ck up!" and to "get to f_ck!", and that's only from my S5 class. We are, effectively, training such pupils that there's no consequences to such, dare I say it, "animalistic" behaviour, and therefore, any incentive to stop is simply non-existent, and so it continues. What do you think of the article, and what's it like in your school?
