    Default How strict is your school?

    This is a copy of why kids get green slips at our school. That's the minor one. 3 of them and you get detention. In my opinion I feel it's not allowing the kids to do anything at all. I'm having a fair few issues with the school currently.

    I don't see anything wrong with what's on that list? Schools need to have boundaries and discipline.

    Eta: I'm also not sure how that isn't 'allowing the children to do anything at all'. It's a fair expectation for schools to have rules and for those rules to be enforced, especially when it comes to safety.

    I'm all for rules etc but there's some things on there that can be handled differently eg excluding others from games....issuing a green slip teaches nothing. Exclusion shouldnt be tolerated but it also shouldn't be reason for a green slip, rather work out a way to help children get on

    There's always more than one way to handle a situation though. Unfortunately, teachers don't always have time to orchestrate every social situation so if they notice the same behavior happening repeatedly, they may need to use a green slip.

    I don't see a problem with anything on that list. Children should be able to behave and be respectful of others.

    But the reason it would happen repeatedly is because it was never dealt with properly in the first place.

    Default How strict is your school?

    I'm primary school, but many of those behaviours listed on the green slip would warrant time out/suspension/take home. So for that reason I don't believe it's overly strict.

    Is this for a secondary school? I guess the slips exist because of different classes and teachers, and it's a way to keep track. I think three chances for some of these at secondary level and even middle/upper primary level is quite lenient actually. I also totally disagree with three chances to push/trip others before any further action is taken.

    ETA particularly if the punishment for pushing others is only a detention.

    Tripping another kid over three times is (if it's the same kid) bullying (ie repeated and targeted), and should warrant much more than a detention.

    I don't have issue with anything that is on that list. It's hard for a teacher to deal with playground antics. I imagine they get heaps of 'they won't let me play' each lunch time and recess. When one of my kids is having a hard time because they are excluding a child with good reason but being forced to play by the playground duty teacher I let the class teacher know what is going on, and then it gets dealt with in a more controlled environment by someone who understands what is going on. We don't have a green card system, but I don't think changing schools will help much when it comes to teachers dealing with playground antics. The teacher:student ratio in the playground is just too large.

    I don't have a problem with most on the list. The one about not allowing a child to interfere in another child's dispute is strange. What if the child was trying to stand up for someone else being bullied? Do they get in trouble for that? Would they get in trouble for telling on another child who is being a bully?

    I can see the point of most of the others though.
