    Does anyone know if schools are within their rights to leave S5s classes unsupervised?

    Of course they are. Right up until the moment that an unsupervised student gets injured / shown in YouTube doing something stupid etc etc etc. Contact your Union. It can be in confidence.

    Depends if they're all 16, I would have thought. If they're under 16 then they presumably have to be supervised. We still allow study periods for older students, don't we?

    I would guess most S5 classes will still have pupils under 16, at least until New Year.
