Not appropriate for a child, and when I have to do it, I must use gloves and special powder to neutralise the urine and absorb it. If the teachers are busy, you block off the area until an adult can deal with it.
But check that you've got the whole story before you go in all guns blazing. It sounds so incredible that there may be a misunderstanding - was your ds sure it was wee? Could the other child have spilled their drink and the children thought he had wet himself?
Hey Seeker - yes don't worry, I'm not the 'go in guns blazing' type. DS is full of stories at the moment..my DM helps in DS classroom this afternoon, so she is going to chat to DS teacher before I make any complaint. Thanks
Sounds like they need more TA's to me! Is there a full time TA? If not I think this is a good time to bring up with the head the need for one. I've found having a full time TA in the class room makes a huge difference, at any age of primary school.
If my 6 yo had been asked to clean up wee he would have ended up spereading it around half the class room.
At the age of 6, DS1 would have vimited at the request...who would have cleaned that up.
Surely it would have been better to keep the children away from the area untill an adult wwas able to deal with it?
I agree Lynette, that an adult should of done it. DS has a teacher, 2 x Full Time TA's (one general and one for SN boy). That's why I was puzzled. DS (bless him) would do pretty much whatever the teacher asked him to do.
I have to say, I hope they told him to wash his hands afterwards, it wouldn't of crossed DS mind !! x
Just thought I would update on this having discovered the facts !!
Apparently it was the very end of the school day on Monday and X had an accident and there was wee everywhere, DS Teacher asked DS to put towels on the floor where the wee was so that the cleaners could see where it was and sort it out.
When she turned around DS was cleaning the floor !
Apparently when DM had spoken to the teacher today, she said that she expected it to be raised.
