Just wanted to ask people what kinds of sanctions you all have in your schools. SMT very keen to use praise and rewards for children, but do not apply any kind of sanctions. All problem children to be dealt with by individual teachers rather than management- is this the norm? Therefore lowl level disruptions never dealt with!! Would be nice to hear from other primary teachers. I have a nice class but they rae very unkind to eachother and despite my carrying out all my sanctions for bad behaviour (not within expectations) children are not learning and am finding that SMT are very soft on them. There is no sense of respect for teachers (this comment also made by other teachers in school) and it is getting worse- mainly because no one wants to know. please post- am considering trying a different school, might help me to decide.
