I am at my wits end. I have a group of three boys in a small group (of 6) for Resource Teaching. They are making my life miserable. Well one in particular - I had them last year as well and though they weren't brilliant they weren't this bad. This one boy constantly arrives late, taking the other two "sheep" with him, is defiant because he wants to be, won't sit on his seat, tries to pick on some of the other students, would make nasty comments to both myself and others, makes a point of trying to open all the windows if its cold (close them if it is warm), (there is no way of locking them). He does absolutely nothing in class, talks across the room to his pal. He has only recently become this bad though he was never what you would describe well behaved. Nothing has happened either at home or at school to warrant this worsening in behaviour....I have tried everything...giving out to them, notes, detention, sending him to management nothing works I mean nothing....I devised a behaviour plan but it didn?t work as there was little or no support from HOY. I am at my wits end....he seems to go out of his way get at me....he does kick off with other people but I have him twice a day every day so I am on the front line the most. Today he has started walking outside my classroom and looking in when he should be in class. Help me please I am at the end of my tether. I keep thinking it is something I am doing wrong but I have a lot of kids who would have the same behavioural issues as this one and I get on very well with them in fact he is the only one I have trouble with. I have gone to management but I have to say they were not very helpful and I am afraid of causing too big a fuss. I feel physically sick at the thought of having to be in the same room as him.
