I have been suspended for 48 hours after and incident on Friday afternoon where i used swearing words against a student who was holding a sharp implement, and refusing to sit down or leave the room. I had called for assistance which didn`t arrive. The head saw me today and said he would contact me once he has interviewed some pupils from the class. He initially indicated that this would be gross misconduct- is it? The language I used was the F word in gerund from followed by the insult ending in 'head. I also told him to eff off. I am not a member of a union. Is this the end of my career? Very worried..
