    insanely I have come across schools where shouting too loud is now seen as misconduct and breaking the teacher standards under aggression clause.

    If you work in a school in which the SMT will not support you in the exercise of reasonable discipline, especially if the students witness it, you are in a hopeless situation.[/QUOTE]

    When allegations are made against supply staff by pupils you are simply asked to leave and not return no support it’s a disgrace.

    I think there is a certain lack of understanding amongst some newer teachers and managers regarding the constant game of entrapment some of the kids like to play.

    The one where students are deliberately as awkward and hostile as possible in an effort to provoke you into saying something they can try to get you into trouble over. If that doesn't work they can then twist anything you do say into something they can cause trouble with.
