What does a child have to do to get suspended...

    One of my year 10 boys told me to have an orgasm. His punishment was five days suspension. I was happy about the way the leader handled this situation but was curious about what the consequence might be in your schools and how bad a child needs to act to be suspended.

    I don't think the fact that they were Bibles is relevant. Arson on school property is dangerous, if nothing else. Bibles are not sacred objects, the subject matter is but not the physical object. This is different from some other religions where the physical copies of the texts are themselves sacred.
  3. In our school, it is literally impossibble to get an exclusion, even for regular attacks on staff. Head doesn't believe in them i'm afraid. I have no idea why staff morale is rock bottom and ofsted and the lea are baffled by us!

    they tend to be baffled by classroom teachers because it is so long since they have been one (if ever!)
    our recently retired Maths advisor had never taught the national curriculum (he had not taught since before out NQT was born!)
    I used to work in the Banking sector, half of all inspection teams were on secondment for one or max two years

    Yep, I was observed by one of these recenlty ( line manager off with stress) . He had not got a clue, not only on how to observe, but also how to feed back. Not only me , but all the members of staff he observed. This is disgraceful. Not been teachign in the classroom for a very long. Just supplementing his pension and causing a lot of upset and distress.
