I am slightly intrigued that we have not debated isolation booths on this forum. I would have expected vigorous debate. According to the people reported here https://www.tes.com/news/watch-isolation-booths-de-skilling-teachers isolation booths deskill teachers. I'm not sure that I agree with this. For starters, it was never me who sent anyone to the isolation booth, that was a decision (rightly) made by SLT in response to serious behaviour difficulties. I put a lot of effort into trying to support the kids who got put into isolation. It was often a relief when they vanished as then I could put my efforts into pedagogy with the rest of the class. In my school, the isolation booth meant a certain amount of isolation from the child's peers. As these relationships were often destructive, that made a certain amount of sense. They also had attention from the supervisor of the isolation room - a "dragon with a heart of gold". They aslo had targeted work from the subject teachers who usually managed to pay them a visit to deliver work and support. I suspect it wasn't like that everywhere. I still maintain my view that mainstream school isn't appropriate for all the kids we try to push through it. It sort of works for many, but was failing to deal with those needing more support. I now work with some of these "fallen through the cracks" kids in a different environment.
