Bathroom breaks makes the case for allowing students to use toilets during lessons.
- In the UK, teachers can stop students from using the toilet and there are multiple incidents where this power has led to students bleeding through clothes when they are on their periods or wetting themselves.
- Neither common sense policies nor full bans on students going to the toilet have failed to work.
- All students should be allowed to use the toilets during lessons and alongside this rule, we support a complaints system Ofsted so students can raise complaints about teachers if needed.
