Daughter in trouble at school !

Is this an over the top reaction from school ?
Daughter who is in year 6 primary came home with a ' behaviour incident ' letter yesterday ( never had any other problems in the 8 yrs she has attended the school and pre school ) always had brilliant reports etc .
Anyway yesterday lunchtime , her and 5 of her friends were on ' unsupervised duties ' ...as in sorting out the tesco vouchers in to bundles in the music room . One of them went the toilet so they all decided to hide from her , one of them hid in a small cupboard .
Another friend ( the only boy ) thought it would be fun to lock the cupboard with the key and then slot the key down the back !!!
Kid in cupboard gets distressed , my daughter and friends are trying to find the key to no avail , so got a teacher , they panicked and headmistress phones fire brigade who had to cut her out !!

Prank that went wrong obviously !

I gave her a good telling off last night and punished her accordingly , ie grounded, no laptop,and to write an apology letter .

I went to school this morning to apologise and to find out more and was told that no-one would say who locked the door , so i told them what i was told by daughter ( which is the above )!
She has come out of school today very upset , they have had all privilges taken away, cant play out when they return after Easter for at least a week , her name got drawn for an Easter egg prize and she was told she couldnt have it , and now telling those involved that they still maybe sending the bill to us parents for the fire brigade ( £ 340 )..

Sorry so long but trying to paint a true picture , prob still missed some , lol

Btw , she has never ever been in trouble before !!

Surely it should just be the boy who got in trouble?

the school (and your punishment) is spot on. she'll hopefully never do anything like that again

So it wasn’t your daughter who locked the girl in the cupboard but a boy? Is there a reason her and her 5 friends won’t specify it was this boy who locked her in the first place?

Obviously the kids aren't owning up, and the school can't take the OPs word for it.

Blame the teachers... unsupervised, left key lying around etc.

Definitely OTT regarding the fire brigade. How strong was the lock?!

Thats what i think , yes the others were in the wrong as none of them would say who locked the door , but he has now admitted it , so surely he should be punished more .....and his parents foot the bill if it comes to it !

I think the school may of gone a bit over the top but then i guess they have to set an example of the kids, so nobody else gets any ideas. Did you pay for the easter draw? if so i would be asking for my money back!

Saying that at my sons school they get house points the top two from each class get a prize at the end of each term , my son won last term and again this term and told he couldn't have it as his had one before (_;) schools make up stupid rules sometimes .

Suppose they didnt want to be a snitch . He has now admitted it , but they are all getting treated the same !!...........even the kid that was in the cupboard :|

I would tell the school to investigate it properly and until they have and spoken to all the kids involved to your satisfaction I would tell them to go poke themselves..

To the headmistress , its more annoying that they broke up today for 2 weeks and when i found out about what happened today when we got home the headmistress had left when i rang them .

I would raise a separate complaint with the school and ask why the children were left unsupervised.

Thats what got to me more , totally unrelated and i think she has been punished enough and has realised how a silly prank can go wrong !

No offence... but since when do 10/11 year olds have such strong 'I won't snitch' morals

On the letter it says they allow unsupervised duties in yr 6 to get them ready for transition to high school .

I think everything sounds fine, bit harsh on the easter egg draw but then again you cant get rewarded after such an incident. The only bit i do feel uncomfortable about is the unsupervised kids, specially when there is a cuboard and keys. Children can be extremly imaginative and spontaneous in their actions and therefore do not understand why they were left unsupervised and why keys were not properly put away in a lock box, out of reach. I would tell the head they can stick the bill where the sun dont shine and then ask why the key was not securly put away!

However, the kids are 10-12(?) and should have some sense not to lock anyone in a cupboard. The boy (if he did lock the girl and hid the key) should have alerted the teacher where the key is, but in a moment of panic by both the child and teacher i bet he got scared.

just goes to show that a group of kids together can do the silliest of things.

Dont know , but thet obviously did in this case !..........it was only when they spoke to them all again today that he admitted it and showede them were he put the key !

Reminds me of the friends episode where Joey get locked in the entertainment cabinet! :D

Yes does seem a little over the top but as always if nobody owns up everybody suffers.

Thats why i find it hard to say who is right and who is wrong. the kids are almost in secondary school and so have common sense. but there are times when kids just act like kids. this is a toughy

My dad said the same , why couldnt the caretaker or male teacher try and force it open ?

Turns out the caretaker is out for lunch and the only male teacher was away on a school trip .

Teachers should be sorting the vouchers. Plenty of free time in the holidays for that!

if teachers did that then they would loose all the free time to sit and watch jeremy kyle on tv. Waste of time some teachers... unless you teach english maths or science lol

My first thought was that the fire brigade is ott, but if she was in a very small cupboard with no caretaker to help, and obv in distress then thats fair enough.. If it were my son I wouldnt want him locked inside for a length of time while they fannied around with a lock tbh.
I suggest when you go back you all get together and ask for a meeting with the head.. They cant just send you a bill with no proper communication, and ATM it seems like it wants splitting with the boys parents and the teacher whos key it was!

Didn't anyone else do similar pranks at school?, Rather harsh but from Health and Safety point of view I can understand why, Partly the teachers fault's but then again your daughter should be just about old enough to understand that her involvement was wrong, I hope she learns from it.

I recall I was a pain at school in maths and for 2 lesson's in maths she locked me and a friend in a storage office..!!! We dismembered the alarm, Was well funny.
#30
I don't think they can make you pay for the fire brigade call out as they would need proof that it was your daughter that committed the act. Possibly just highlighting the seriousness of the offense and scaring you.

If I went to a shop with a friend and he stole summit without my knowledge and they gave me the same sentence as him - solicitor time.

A point of view is not every child may learn from this if the penalty is too lenient

Exactly , we all did silly things as kids , she has deffo learnt her lesson and cried for an hour when she came home and had a telling off !.........got to admit i had to go in the kitchen afterwards and have a little chuckle after imagining the event !..............btw the child in the cupboard is fine and thought it was quite funny .....even her mum grounded her for being so silly and getting in the cupboard in the first place , lol

Tbh , i have got a feeling they have told them this to put the frightners on them and i think it was said before the boy confessed .
