I recently posted about the difficulties I have had in the school I have just started in. Since then I have had 2 boys removed from my class "till things have calmed down". One over a week ago and the other today. Both these children have been reprimanded by me for a catalogue of things : shouting out in class (not the answers to questions, just shouting!), screwing up work , refusing to work, saying no when I've asked them to do something, walking out of a PE lesson because "I am not allowed to do it" even though I'd said no such thing (he'd been in trouble at playtime and refused to come and sort it out when I'd asked, something that was witnessed by the senior teacher). What worries me is that after said child had spoken to the teacher none of the sanctions were put in place that would normally happen for saying no to a teacher such as missing a break, instead he has been taken out of the class, I am beginning to worry that he has said I pick on him and that is why he's been removed. I think I may be getting paranoid (an easy thing to do if everyone is picking on you !) but I feel that I'm under constant scrutiny, I mentioned to the senior teacher about 2 children getting off the school bus and going to the shop and was told just to turn around ( but it was the look on his face I didn't like it was as if he was telling me that I'm being fussy) my concern was that not only do they buy energy drinks so come in climbing the walls but if something happened to them what is the consequences because I'd seen them! Sorry for the long post but I am just so miserable, I havent felt this bad in years.
