Hiding children...out of class.

    Is it ethical for a school to keep a child out of class all day during an ofsted inspection, working with an adult.
    This is not the child's normal timetable. However, the school /teacher may feel that the child will not behave well. I am just interested in your thoughts on this matter. The child in question was not given a change to misbehave but immediately split from peers.

    It is not ethical - it is gaming the system.. A friend of a friend informed me of a school where a number of 'difficult' pupils were taught off site for two days while an Ofsted inspection was in progress.

    I know they're playing the system but I think it's wrong for children to be pulled put of class like this. They might as well tell them to stay at home. There wasn't even any proper teaching! Just baby sitting!

    If the schools gets caught doing this it will likely be deemed as inadequate.
