    What about sex noises throughout your lesson? I had to put up with this as did my colleagues for a number of years from an individual and was told to ignore it. There was nothing wrong with the child at all- just naughty.

    I haven't ever come across any correlation between intrestingness of lesson and likelihood of teacher getting sworn at!

    why can't I vote? I was going to say external exclusion, generally, unless mitigating circumstances, child has courgettes, child recently experienced trauma, etc.

    I'm assuming courgettes was an interesting diagnosis!

    I do prefer the image of a child carrying courgettes to lessons. Would they keep them in their bag or put them on the desk so they didn't get damaged?

    I wouldn't worry about courgettes, half my class are turnips!

    I work in an SMEH setting.

    If I don't get called a 'f****ng m***gy b***h' or something similar at least once an hour I start to wonder what's going on.

    Interestingly, my point is that it becomes just words. And you learn to look for the reasons behind them. That's what my job is about.

    Bollo*ks to that! I've always said, if they swear at me, they go or I do! No exceptions or excuses.
