Hi I teach a class of 7 pupils all with a diagnosis of ASC, ranging in age from 11 to 14. It is a class with some pupils who have challenging behviours which can lead to harm of both adults and other pupils. One of the pupils has recently been attending school mornings only with the idea of preventing a permanent exculsion. There are plans to find an alternative placement for him but in the meantime, he is remaining in the class. As far as possible the class is separated in order to avoid too much disruption in the education of the other 6 pupils. This requires him to be staffed by 2 staff members, which are rotated but all familiar to him. His behaviours include low level spitting in general but then leads to spitting directly in your face, self-induced vomitting and then he will deliberately poo in his hand or dig for poo and throw it directly at the adults working with him or smear it. This happens on a daily basis. The staff and myself are responsible for cleaning him up after these incidents and also to clean up any areas that have been soiled. He has a positive behaviour plan which includes as a last resort to offer a calm space. Often when he chooses the calm space, he will then spit, vomit or smear in the room. We have very little support from the Senior Leaders. I have contacted my Union as my staff and I are no longer prepared to continue in this way. They have suggested that we have a plan too support staff once all the strategies from his behaviour plan have been exhausted. Does anybody else have such a support plan in place for staff? We are not a behavioural school but a school for pupils with severe and profound learning difficulties. PLEASE!!!
