Boy taught in cupboard, unusual?

Octagon: If the boy needs such specialist provision as a fully fitted time-out room, what the hell is he doing in a mainstream primary school in the first place?

friendlyface: I've had to teach aerobics in a cloakroom while on teaching practice. Twenty-five girls dodging around the benches.

Wilma: Our SENCO's room used to be the staff toilets many years ago.

Polli: What is the essential difference between a cupboard and a room? Is it the presence of a window?

Spirulla: No SMT should expect any of their staff to work in such poor conditions. They should do a risk assessment first, for everyone's sake.
