    Don't know whether to speak to HT. Yesterday whilst the teacher was taking register my dd was learning back on her chair. As punishment the teacher made her stand up until lunchtime and even missed her playtime.

    She's learned a hard lesson then. I think the Head has more important things to deal with than listening to you whining about your DDs punishment. Just tell her not to do it again.

    What would you ask the Head to do about it? I would have thought that standing up for the morning was already enough punishment for your DD.

    Would you rather she carried on swinging and hit her head?

    Is this the story your DD told you or do you know this for sure? I ask this because my oldest son used to come home and tell me the most fantastic punishments the teacher gave him. He was one of those kids that could lie for England. Thankfully, he outgrew it.

    But you don't know this to be true, do you? Friends usually back each other up. I would get your facts straight before you approach the Head. Ask for an appointment with the Head and discuss it. How old is your DD?

    Standing will not do her any harm. It is very possibly not the first time she has been told off about it. She needs to understand that different behaviour is expected at school and that the teacher should be listened to, not ignored.

    If she is just 6, then you do need to speak to the Head. Even at 6, a child would know it isn't a good idea to lean back on the chair as it could cause her to have an accident if the chair moved and she fell backwards.

    I think 3 hours is a very long time for a 6 year old to stand up, 1 hour would of been enough.

    What Seamus posted.

    You have your daughters version and she is six.

    Calmly talk to the head and ask them to confirm whether its true and then question whether thats the appropriate/ usual form of punishment for a six year old. The version of what happened may not be accurate or the whole story.
