I would be grateful for suggestions. I have a year 8 student who manages to disrupt every single lesson and usually gets himself sent out which I am starting to suspect is his aim. He is unable to sit still, will make irrelevant (at times offending) comments in a loud voice which triggers laughter from an otherwise well behaved and reasonably motivated class (German). I have tried engaging him one to one, applied the discipline ladder consistently, moved him to the front, to the back, next to an able student etc to no avail. I have noticed that he gets sent out from other lessons so it clearly is not just me but I am concerned that this student is missing out on a large chunk of education time. The issue should probably be picked by someone higher than me in the chain of command but nothing seems to be happening. What can little me do?
