Working in a pru I deal with difficult behaviour daily. SLT are usually very supportive. However I have been left reeling after being advised to 'laugh' as a technique for dealing with students who violently attacked me leaving me in quite a lot of pain. No-one from SLT have even asked me if I am ok. Seriously, how are teachers supposed to remain professional with such unsympathetic and unprofessional responses from our SLT?
