Behaviour is absolutely out of control at my current school, after a period of improving it has gone drastically worse. Over the past few months I have regularly been swore at, and the victim of some particularly nasty verbal abuse from students. The students know there will be no significant consequences for them and are even pre-planning their abuse and collaborating to make false accusations against staff who try to challenge them. I follow the schools behaviour policy and log all incidents on the computer system, I have also requested support from the member of staff on-call quite a few times, only for them to either not show up, or have a quiet word with the students involved and return them to my lesson - for them to be booted out for doing the same again. There seems to be no punishment or reprimand for swearing at staff at all! In a previous school I taught at, students were internally excluded for even swearing in the presence of staff, and externally excluded for swearing at staff. What is the punishment in your school?
