Monitor pupils who participate in the toilet Olympics

Keep a record of pupils who wish to go to the toilet. This is a national sport in schools. Pupils often agree to meet with a friend or just use the time to escape from you and your lesson. Do not be party to their antics. Keep a list of who you let out and when. This is good for any instances of vandalism or if you have to show a pupil proof that they are making this a habit.
