I work in an EBD school. Its my first time working in this kind of environment so I want to get a bigger picture of EBDs or whether my school is the same as everywhere else and this is just the way it is? For example what punishments or consequence systems are in place elsewhere? Do pupils get excluded or suspended? Im getting very frustrated because at our school there seems to be no consequence or punishment for extremely bad behaviour? We have a non exclusion policy so regardless of what the pupils do they will never be excluded. Its like I go to work everyday to be threatened, beaten up and disempowered. We use a restrain technique (PRICE) but it has been accepted by the Head and Managers that we have two pupils (we have 19 pupils in total) that we cannot use this on, as they are too strong and too big. So at the moment these pupils can do what they like and there is no consequence. Is anyone else somewhere like this? I dont want to go back to work on Monday..
