Hello everyone, this is my first post so please be gentle...... We are a mainstream first school, taking pupils upto nine years old. We had an extremely violent pupil from early years to year four, this child while a pupil, broke a TA's cheekbone, tried to stab another child, bit, spat, punched and basically terrorised both staff and pupils. The headteacher introduced him to chess which calmed him but it meant the head teacher then spent every break/lunchtime playing with him. Something the other children noticed and commented on. i.e 'If I'm naughty I have to stand outside the office, but when ******* is naughty he gets to play with Mr ********' So you can imagine our relief when last July he finally left to attend a special school. We heard today that a decision has been made to allow this child back into our school for a couple of days a week for respite! Apparently the special school can't cope with him, so we are all being put in danger again! My question is....is our headteacher allowed to do this, bearing in mind nobody asked us if we minded, we just heard it from other staff members. If this pupil hurts another child or staff member while on the premises what would be the implications?
