Going to the toilet in lessons.

Recommended Posts

I teach at a primary school (year 2 UK). I don't let children go to the toilet during lessons. Would you have a problem with this rule for your child?

Yep. Where do you teach so I can avoid sending my kids there 

They get breaks to use the toilet so they shouldn't need to go in lesson time.

Year 2? They're fucking children. Let them go to the toilet if they need it. If my kid pissed themselves because some teacher on a power trip wouldn't let them to the toilet during lessons, there'd be trouble.

They are 5-7 year olds.  Generally unless they need to go they won't do so as forward planning because they won't be able to later. Obviously you're allowed to have this rule since you do have it but it's a bit overly authoritarian.

On a side note, who joins a wrestling forum just to ask the members opinion on how they do their job?

A troll who isn’t a teacher and is asking a pathetic question knowing it will cause people to respond in angst, at a guess.

I remind them before each break. There is never longer than a couple of hours between breaks. They are 6 and 7.

When I was at school, my dad told me that if a teacher doesn't let me go to the toilet, piss in the corner of the classroom and say it was either that or piss myself.

I have never had a child wet themselves. One of the parents was unhappy during the week because her daughter was desperate on the way home. She asked 5 minutes after lunch.
