My SIL has just called me to say that her DD10 has been flirting with her male TA teacher who is in his twenties. She has been calling him love and honey too. They have been called to the deputy heads office after school today and it sounds very very serious. My niece has had problems at school with anger management, was even excluded for a day last year for it. She is registered with CAMHS too so there are some outstanding issues. Not having heard of this sort of thing in primary school before I wondered if any knew just how seriously a school might take it - they wont exclude her again will they. I feel for the poor teacher it must be an awful position for him to be in in when he only started at the school at the beginning of term. Apparently he is very attractive and when my dd came home on the first day she said that she had a "sexy new teacher". Doesnt sound right does it from the mouth of a 10 year old. She is in year 6 and is soon be 11.

Of course they can't exclude a girl for making flirtatious cooments to her teacher.It is for him to nip it in the bud and move on.i don't think there is anything wrong with an 11 year old lusting.i was certainly starting to have those kind of urges at 11.Although I was a lot more discreet about it.

Thats a relief. I think it is is first job and because my niece has caused so many problems over the last few years there I am worried they will be harsher than they normally would. I have no idea what proceedures schools have in place for such thing. Of course we dont know exactly what she has done yet - her Mum seemed to think it was quite bad, but she was upset at the time. Im guessing they have to document everything nowadays.

It sounds like she has some serious underlying issues that the school should be aware of as she is attending CAMHS. THe school probably just want to chat to mum about it and discuss strategies for getting her to stop. It's an inclusion issue and the school will surely be looking to help, not exclude.

I think the mum needs to have a talk with her daughter as well about inappropriate behaviour.
