I would have just been witness to a sackable offence.
My stalker from the third year is not a very nice boy. He was getting a thorough telling off in the staffroom by the art teacher, she was really shouting at him. I was doing paperwork when I heard the boy say something back and she handed him over to presumably his form teacher. Now that man was really angry when he was shouting at him and my inner teacher was saying ‘no mate put the boy in detention and go off and calm down, don’t let him get under your skin like that’.
I wasn’t really watching when the kid started backing up the staffroom and the teacher walking up to him and I thought I saw the kid kick the teacher…there was a scuffle behind my desk and so I turned round to see the teacher had the boy by the hair. This really didn’t seem right to me but it was only for the moment and I assumed the boy had started something and the teacher reacted on instinct to stop him.
Turning around for a moment I think I saw the teacher hit the boy. The whole staffroom was in but not watching and my Mountain Climber told the teacher to take it into the Headmasters Office.
I need to check that I saw what I saw but I am not happy. I’ve never seen anything like this and the staffroom pretending that nothing was happening.
