Pupils making false accusations

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by mangeo, May 24, 2012.

  1. What recourse does a teacher have when a student makes a blatantly false accusation against a teacher because he has been given a detention and is simply ****** off and thinks he will get his own back on the "evil" teacher?
    The student has admitted that the accusation of inappropriate behaviour on the part of the teacher, "preving" as the student put it, is not true, but he has been allowed to get away with it and rumours now abound throughout the department in the school. Is there anything that the teacher can do to redress the balance?

    The teacher could take the matter up with the HT.

    The pupil should be made to apologise face to face with a third party present. There should also be an appropriate punishment so it is made quite clear that this behaviour will not be tolerated. There is obviously an issue if pupils feel that they can a) behave badly and get away with it and b) throw toys out of pram when given a detention and behave in this way. There needs to be accountability. Sadly missing in a lot of schools.
