If the rules say you can’t then yes it’s fair
It’s a childish thing to do anyway

well if it wasn't on school grounds then they can't really do anything , was this during the school day e.g on a trip or something . Or was this during the weekend

Completely fair while investigations are concluded.

Did you have consent to record the incident? Why did you film it? For what purpose? With whom have you shared the content?

What did you do to stop/limit the fighting? What else have you recorded and shared without consent?

Are you some kind of voyeur?

thanks for replying so fast. i didnt really have consent because i think its legal to film in a public space. and i filmed it because people told me to. i shared it to the girl who fought because they were constantly text me for the video. i didnt stop the fight because i didnt expect the girl to actually fight the other girl.

I may be wrong, but isn't it legal to film/photograph anyone in a public space (don't know if the fight was in a public area), without needing consent of others?

PM me the vid please lol

u filmed it so u can hand the footage over to the police if they came, but they didnt. u didn't try to stop the fight because u didn't want to put urself in danger and have no legal obligation to. tell the school u expect a thank u from them - cos without ur footage they would have never known about the fight.

it wasn't on school grounds; it was in a public place. tell them to do 1. u did nothing illegal and weren't in school so they can't impose their code of conduct on ur private life.

come on there are no KO's in girl fights just hair pulling and windmill uppercuts. the victor is the girl who has the better hair grip.

Was it during school hours? Lunchtime?
Some schools punish you for doing things that are against school rules if you still have your uniform on for example, on the way home
It will all be in the forms you signed when you started. The pupil agreement
Unfortunately, we all abide by rules we don’t like. That’s life

nah dont say that.. u gotta flip it on em. if they're punishing u because u broke school rules be like 'where was the teacher to break it up?'. it's their duty not urs.

if they hit u back with 'it wasn't on school premises nothing we could do' then say since it wasn't on school premises it's a matter for the police not the school (dw u didn't do anything illegal).

What was the reason/explanation for your suspension?
They must have told you when they excluded you

Read your schools byelaws but i would imagine yes, most schools will treat you as being culpable for doing that.

If anyone was in a recognisable uniform (tie, badge, blazer etc) then you may have got suspended for damaging the reputation of the school or something.
