I must add, my daughter was caught *drinking beer* on the bus *to* school and deserved some punishment… (school not following through after previous & less serious incidents has been an issue that I think has contributed to pretty unpalatable behaviour recently) so I didn’t have a problem with isolation! She hates school so the exclusion she also recieved was a bonus to her. But she actually liked it as it removed the distractions that generally cause her to make the poor choices that get her into trouble at school.
I also love Michelle Marcia Winner – I use Superflex with my SEMH and SEN groups in my infant school. They respond brilliantly to it!
