I think OP got answers alright. I give her credit to trust her own kids and their reporting skills, none of our biz to start questioning them.
Tosh, I trust the teacher over some 7 year old kid (uhm... None of our business to start questioning them...really?). Obviously the scenario warrants further investigation.

Hahaha...I always question little storries of little people, it's my job.

I was talking about a dad who posted some question and immediately it was vampire teeth...did you ask your kid the right way? What if the kid is making this up? I trust the parent checking their kids' stories as the no. 1 thing, we can't check, we don't even know the kiddo, and the way I read the question was, if a teacher did this, is that normal here? Not how do I find out my child is making stories up. Since we have had a couple of thoughtful posts kid discipline related here from the OP, I trust him doing his investigation first, then coming here asking if this is normal, then checking out with the teacher (equiped by some EF perspectives and opinions), it's easier to ask a school after a bit of brainstorming.

Most of all, I hope OP dares to share with us what the outcome was.

Ok, next...where were we...no, not a very normal thing to grab a kiddo by his neck and walk him out of the class. Not with small kids, nor big kids. HTH (hope that helps).

I am not sure what kind of investigation there possible is to do. Speculation, sure.

Re: 7 year old marched out of the class by the scruff of his neck

point of order here mlud.Grabbing the kids by the back of their necks is fairly unlikely as there is nothing to grab, and round their necks would undoubtedly leave marks at the slightest resistance. Is it therefore not unlikely mlud that in fact the teacher removed them by holding on to their collars which would understandably be acceptable to the parent rather than a physical assault?

erm... Why would you back your son up whatever happens? Next time he comes running, smile sweetly and carry on. If it's serious you'll still be hearing about it the next day.
I would back him up if he got hurt but in the same tone he would be hearing from me in the strongest terms if I find he's to blame for any or all of it.

Maybe I worded it badly but what I don't want is for him to think he can't come to me with anything, even if he's been a little shite but ended up coming off worse for it. I guess I'll muddle through it...

Our seven year old told us he was being bullied at school by a particular boy.

We rang the teacher. She said our son had a particular way of winding up this other boy which caused him to react.

Problem solved with one phone call and a few words to our son.

Maybe he's in training for joining the EF when he's older

Yeah my cousin was telling me about a conversation between his 5 year old son and wife.

Son: mummy, Dave was saying I smell like poo
Mum: just ignore him, sticks and stones may break etc...
Son: what does that mean?
Mum: it means that hitting and kicking can really hurt but words you can ignore
Son: and Dave hit me too!

Re: 7 year old marched out of the class by the scruff of his neck

Well, I don't automatically trust people on the forum over teachers who happen not to be members. All of this is hearsay, we don't know what happened.

Re: 6 year old marched out of the class by the scruff of his neck

I've always thought it was the "Magna Carta", but hey, I didn't dare challenge the teacher in those days, you would have ended hung from a hook!

Yes, all this thanks to that Habeas Corpus thing and the dreaded Magner Carter. If only mad King George had kept his barons under control we wouldn't have to put up with it.
