So today I had a particularly strong smelling class of 8/9 yr olds ( no SN) and asked if anyone needed the loo please just go .
The smell got worse and worse and I stopped them and repeated myself and asked if anyone needed the nurse. Pretty soon it was obvious someone had more than just wind and the class were loudly speculating who. I asked three pupils in the vicinity of and including the smelliest "please boys go to the toilet and if you need help send a friend to get it from the nurse or me " "No they were all good" they said . "Does anyone have a sore tummy " I asked ."Nope , they were feeling good ".
Now fortunately the lesson ended and I past my spectulations on the the TA who collected them .
She said she would get everyone to the toilet but couldn't really individually check the boy in question . It's probably in the policies somewhere but WWYD if it happened in your class ?
P.S It was actual poo , some make it to the floor .

Crikey. Poor child.

I'm not sure really, but I don't think asking the class as a whole is the way forward....surely no ones going to put their hand up?

Not a teacher, so fee free to disregard me. If you were pretty sure of which child it was I would have probably have 'needed' to send a note to the nurse/receptionist/whoever and would just happen to pick that child to run it along for me. I'd hope they would stop by the toilet on the way but obviously my note would say they might need some help with the bathroom. That way they wouldn't be embarrassed in front of the class. I'd probably mention it might take some time to deliver the note and help whoever as well.

As to the rest of the class, windows open and complain how awful the pipes/class pet/cloakroom smells that that day.

The joys of teaching.

At 8 or 9 they would have been mortified- best to have sent the chief suspects on a message and hope they would have had the sense to sort themselves out. Failing that, a text to someone in the office to get them out of class and cleaned.

Poor wee soul.

Actually , I am so embarrassed and stand corrected .It was bloody dog poo that the poor boy stood in and had skidded over on on the football pitch . So glad I didn't insist on any inspectionshock.Class teacher had him wiped , changed and cleaned his shoes.

Well, I'm pleased you noticed it was just a mistake but crikey confused how embarrassing for the poor kids!

Eight and nine is MORE than old enough to be utterly bloody mortified at their teacher insinuating they have soiled their pants, and to be teased about others for the same shock

We currently have a Yr4 and a Yr 5 child who persistently soil themselves, and another Yr 4 and Yr 6 who are clearly wetting the bed regularly and not being showered or given fresh clothes . It's very awkward and difficult to minimise the impact both for them and those around them. Outside agencies are dealing with all cases, but it's no better.

I'd have subtly got the suspect out of the room.. Discretely, rather than essentially asking them to fess up and walk out of the room with all the eyes of the class on them.
