My son was grabbed by his plaster cast by a supply teacher she didn't call out to him or warn him when he called out in pain just stared at him he has witnesses any advice to take I've obviously contacted the school

You need to wait for the school to respond, and decide if you are satisfied with that, before asking that question maybe?

What prompted the teacher to grab him?

It depends on the context. If there was a safety issue and the teacher just grabbed the nearest part of him would be understandable whereas a teacher who had just lost their temper wouldn't.

You need to let them investigate and then make a decision as to how to move forward.

It's a bit strange that you don't say why the teacher grabbed him, like she did it for no reason whatsoever, which, to be honest, sounds unlikely.

Why would touching/tapping/grabbing his plaster cast cause him discomfort?

ShawshanksRedemption Thu 24-May-18 17:36:05

What @Soapboxqueen said. You don't say how old your son is, the circumstances, what happened etc. The supply may have had grounds for grabbing him if he was being unsafe to himself or others.

He was facing the back of the classroom

Motherhen18 Thu 24-May-18 18:32:35

Because only a half cast

AmazingPostVoices Thu 24-May-18 18:33:44

We need considerably more context.

Motherhen18 Thu 24-May-18 18:35:01

Sorry ..he was facing back of class room he wasn't rude do you think it is ok for a teacher to grab a child if not violent or being disrespectful

VladmirsPoutine Thu 24-May-18 18:36:00

Can you elaborate? What actually happened? Your post is one long sentence which doesn't offer much.

CrochetBelle Thu 24-May-18 18:36:49

Is this the same teacher that poked a child facing the back of the classroom yesterday? confused

VladmirsPoutine Thu 24-May-18 18:37:05

x-post. So was teacher grabbing him to make him face the front of the class? Had teacher requested he change position and what led him to be facing the back of the class in the first place?

ScreamingValenta Thu 24-May-18 18:37:24

Are you saying that the teacher wanted him to face the front of the classroom, and grabbed hold of the cast to pull him around? Is the cast on his arm?

Melliegrantfirstlady Thu 24-May-18 18:37:31

So he was facing the wall and she in all likelihood took his arm and faced him towards the front of the class?

I’d say fair enough

Fruitcorner123 Thu 24-May-18 18:38:58

You speak to the school and let them investigate.He may not have told you the full story and if his witnesses are his friends they are quite likely to give the same version as him. If she grabbed him with no warning and no imminent threat of danger to him or from him then it seems to be completely unreasonable but give the school chance to investigate.

Motherhen18 Thu 24-May-18 18:39:26

There's no actual reason other then he was facing back of classroom she neither spoke or called out just came straight up behind him and pulled him round by his wrist which has a half cast due to a box break which was manipulate back into place if he was violent or aggressive I would understand but he didn't even speak which the school has completely back up his story along with the children in the classroom

ShawshanksRedemption Thu 24-May-18 18:40:02

@Motherhen "he wasn't rude"

Facing the back of the classroom if everyone had been asked to face the front and he had purposefully ignored that request, is rude.

However, then grabbing him by the cast to get him to face front is not acceptable.

However, this is me guessing at what happened because you're not actually saying what happened?!?

WilyMinx Thu 24-May-18 18:41:34

I personally think no matter what the context, no one should be grabbing anyone by their plaster cast! Has the school responded?

ShawshanksRedemption Thu 24-May-18 18:41:35

@Motherhen "which the school has completely back up his story"

Ok, so if they agree, what was their reason for the Supply grabbing him?

Motherhen18 Thu 24-May-18 18:44:25

The school verifyed his story to day one thing my son is actually to honest but I did questions it myself but the school and children say exactly same story. I don't think it's right behaviour from a teacher without probably cause

ScreamingValenta Thu 24-May-18 18:48:28

She should have asked him to move first, and grabbing the plaster cast was risky.

If the school are supporting your son's version of events, have they said how they will address this - e.g. feedback to the teacher? Or are they saying, yes it happened, but we don't think there was anything wrong in what the teacher did?

Motherhen18 Thu 24-May-18 18:48:40

That's all that happened he was facing back of classroom no warning or asked to face front even once she grabbed him and he'll called ouch she just stared at him the school verifyed his story and said they are investigating with the agency

It sounds as though the school are taking it seriously and following it up.
