The bell rings and the kids start to leave their last lesson to go home in a large inner city secondary school in London.
Student X is blowing up a balloon in the corridor and as he sees Mr. B his Business teacher he calls out, “Happy birthday.” Then student X starts to walk over towards Mr. B with his blown balloon in his hand and a smirk on his face. As he is a few metres away from Mr. B he starts to let the air out of the balloon pointing the end of the balloon towards Mr. B and then laughs as the air gushes out towards Mr. B. There were two other girls walking with him who reprimand student X for his behaviour but he carries on laughing.
Mr. B takes student X to the side and tells him that was it inappropriate behaviour to which student X replies, “I thought we were mates.”
If you were Mr. B what would you do next?
Would you set a sanction and if so what would the sanction be?
