Therefore, without further ado, I award it this week to those in charge of Cefn Hengoed Community.
Ask Richard Tremelling, the ex head of technology at the school.
Mr Tremelling took his sledge to school in February 2009, as part of a lesson in design technology, and allowed (after testing the conditions himself) two 15 year old male pupils (not 5 year olds etc) in his class to use it themselves during the lesson.
Errmm yes actually...can you guess what it is?
Yes, that's right, Mr Tremelling didn't conduct a WRITTEN risk assessment.
- a slap on the wrist?
- a warning letter?
He was fired!
Yes, you read that correctly, Mr Tremelling's "crime" was considered by Nanny to be so heinous that she fired him.
A nice lesson for the kids eh?
Risk is everywhere, do nothing until you have filled in a form.
Ever wondered by so many teenagers hang around street corners looking for trouble?
It's because they are not challenged at school (physically and mentally), and are forbidden from releasing their pent up energy via sport, risk taking etc.
We are reaping the harvest of placing kids in cotton wool.
Sadly for Mr Tremelling only now, almost 2 years later, is his case has only just been heard at an appeal.
The two day disciplinary hearing ruled that Mr Tremelling should be given a formal reprimand, but be allowed to remain on the professional register.
Two years too late!
The school is still adamant it was right...arrogant as well as pratish!
Those in charge of Cefn Hengoed Community School, well deserving Prats of The Week!
