My daughter ( year 7 ) has been excluded from school for 3 days for uploading a fight between 2 boys that happened outside of school grounds but in school uniform.
I am shocked by this punishment if I’m honest, does it seem reasonable to you?

Uploading to where?

Yes, I think that’s a totally appropriate punishment.

CrispbuttyNo1 Fri 07-Dec-18 17:33:55

Why on earth did she think it is acceptable, why was she filming it, and how the hell can you think it’s acceptable behaviour as well?

Anythingforacatslife Fri 07-Dec-18 17:33:59

Yes, completely reasonable on the part of the school.

Completely reasonable. She was totally in the wrong and schools take such things very seriously, and rightly so.

MetallicDandelion Fri 07-Dec-18 17:34:04

On social media? Yes, I think it’s appropriate, too. Did she video it happening?

PurpleDaisies Fri 07-Dec-18 17:34:05

Head teachers do have the right to do this...

Sounds a really dumb thing to have done. I think it’s probably a reasonable punishment but don’t know enough details so not sure.

Yep, very reasonable.

If someone uploaded a video of my son online, meaning even when taken down it's still out there, I would say 3 days isn't enough, definitely teach her a few lessons, 1. Get help, don't film 2. Don't go home and upload it?

PurpleDaisies Fri 07-Dec-18 17:35:27

What do you think would have been a reasonable thing to happen?

iVampire Fri 07-Dec-18 17:36:18

Yes, totally reasonable of the school

noblegiraffe Fri 07-Dec-18 17:36:42

Good. Hopefully she will think twice before doing so in the future.

cushioncovers Fri 07-Dec-18 17:36:53

Yep she shouldn't of done that.

AlexaShutUp Fri 07-Dec-18 17:37:47

Have you taught her about the appropriate use of social media? By year 7, I would presume that your dd would understand why this was unacceptable, so I'm not surprised that the school has come down on her quite heavily. I guess she'll learn her lesson from it!

Very reasonable, well done that school.

Standing recording someone getting hurt and then uploading it is disgusting, and bullying behaviour imo.

50ShadesOfWTF Fri 07-Dec-18 17:38:26

100% reasonable on the part of the school. She should have got to get help or just walked away. Filming it is unacceptable and then uploading it is even worse

TickleMyPickle Fri 07-Dec-18 17:38:54

Sorry yes I wasn’t clear, she wasn’t there, it was sent to her and she in turn has sent it to someone else.
School have followed the chain and all those who shared the video have the same punishment.

HarrySnotter Fri 07-Dec-18 17:39:12

Yes, I think it seems a reasonable sanction. Recording the fight was pretty awful in the first place, never mind posting it online.

PottyPotterer Fri 07-Dec-18 17:39:15

I'm shocked too. I think she got off very lightly, what a disgusting thing to do, she's obviously been stood there filming children beating each other up. She'd be getting a whole load more punishment than that if she was mine. You'll be confiscating her phone indefinitely yes? She's clearly not mature enough to have one. Ask yourself this, how would you feel if a video of your child being beaten ended up online? I've seen such videos and they turn my stomach, I can't imagine how I'd feel if it were my own child.

Fanjita1 Fri 07-Dec-18 17:39:34

Awful behaviour. Punishment mild IMO.

PurpleDaisies Fri 07-Dec-18 17:40:24

School have followed the chain and all those who shared the video have the same punishment.

That’s absolutely right.

What do you think should have happened?

tinytemper66 Fri 07-Dec-18 17:40:24

She is also too young to be on most social media platforms!

HarrySnotter Fri 07-Dec-18 17:40:54

Crossed post. I see she didn't record it herself, but I still believe that the school have acted correctly.

What punishment do you think she should have had?
