Behaviour Breakdown – Punishing the Whole Class

How best to deal with tackling a theft and who to punish The video is designed to prompt debate amongst staff on how this issue should best be dealt with.

Based on true events, the drama shows how the teacher suspects a girl of the chocolate bar theft, after she has found her behaving suspiciously in the cloakroom during break time.

However, without proof, how should she approach the situation? Should she accuse the pupil she suspects? Is she right to punish the entire class until the guilty party admits to the theft?
