“I work at a special needs school so none of the above problems - bliss!”
They really are the best, I could never move to meainstream after being in special needs. When I was at Fountaindale most of the kids thought all the staff where 21. 31st birthday no problem the kids say happy 21st.
It’s very rare to see support staff do anything but we do have the same powers as teachers. I have keep kids in during break before.

I like to distance myself from disciplining the students... I suppose if they were causing me a problem directly, like the thread author, I would say something but most of the time the only 'argument' is them begging me to restore internet access...
My centre manager is very strict with the girls and sits closer to where they may cause problems. First I know is normally another member of staff shouting...
...then I ban internet

We don't have radios (altho' I have suggested a pair of PMR's for me and my NM), but my old Aiptek PenCam might come in handy again one day.

We've just completed a "behaviour audit" prior to a real hard line with the new year 7's (they're not big and they're not clever) next term, as it has been a surprise to see in objective terms just how many pupils are in the highest category, and just how few individuals are responsible for spoiling things for everyone else.
