When I was in Year 9 about to do my SATs exams, the deputy head said that if we don't turn up to school for our SATs then some teachers would go around in a van to take you into school, they would drag you out of bed and bring you in in your nightclothes and that you will look like an idiot. He is not a jokey man, he definitely wanted us to believe it and other teachers backed him up.

When I was in one of the exams the exam invigilator said that there are two people absent, one is in hospital and the other is too far away for the van to go and find him.

Everyone believed that they would because at that age we seemed to think it was legal for teachers to do just about anything except for hit us if it got us to behave.

I realise now that this is ridiculous but is it even legal for them to say that? They were threatening to kidnap us!

Please can some law person tell me if this is legal. Thanks

No, it is not legal, there is no way a teacher can even enter your house without your permission.
your teacher was lying and taking advantage of the fact that you were all naive year 9's.

They can certainly knock on your door and get your parents to force you out.

This.

When I bunked off school one day the headmaster knocked on my door and demanded I got into my school uniform and come and get back to school right away, then he drove me back to school

The only people that can enter your house forcibly are the Police or Customs & Excise. So unless you are spending your time bunking off on importing 100,000 counterfeit DVDs, you're probably OK.

They can go to the authorities if your under 16 and take your parents to court. If your over 16, they can do sweet FA apart from ring your parents if they care enough to.

This totally happened to me once. I couldn't be bothered going to school, and suddenly my headmistress burst in through the window wearing a ninja costume and wielding a katana. She held it to my throat while the deputy head tied me up and put a bag over my head. They hit me a few times and next thing I remember I was in Maths learning trigonometry.

I still haven't gotten over it. *sniff*

Is it legal for a teacher to come to your house with social services and get you to pay a fine just for not going school for 2 weeks ? Please can someone tell me urgently?

Teachers eh? They do like a laugh! The school really must have everybody in to do SATS. That’s why they pretended that the child catcher would get you. 😆
