It is important that students are telling teachers on duty or class teachers (depending on where the incident occurs) straight away. That way we can deal with the incident, talk to all people involved and provide feedback immediately.
When students tell you and not teachers, we are then chasing up information and students after the event. This makes discussions, conversations with parents and investigations more difficult as students forget details, names and at times information that may be important.
Also, schools are required to get all information about the incident and not just one person's perspective – this allows a full picture with multiple check points about the incident. So the value of the student telling us immediately gives us the BEST CHANCE to sort it out and let parents know.
Please encourage your child to:
Use the Palm of Peace
Let a teacher know if this does not work and ask for help from duty teacher or class teacher
Ask for help from another teacher if they could not find a duty teacher
Also, I have had a few conversations with parents and students about – when consequences occur to the other student – they may not be aware that this has occurred as we do not discuss other child's consequences or meeting with other parents/students. So your student may be unaware of follow up – but it may have occurred.
Thank you for your time and support in advance.
