what is the common word for someone who is a tattletale?

What is the common french word for someone who is a  "tattletale", specifically a child.  I have seen the verb "dénouncer" in my lessons but not the noun.  What would be used in a primary school where there are always children who "tattletale"? Dénounceur/euse?    Merci!

Hope this helps.

There are other words, for example ‘ Il est le rapporteur/Elle est la rapporteuse de la classe ‘. 7 minutes (10 sec) into this YouTube video : https://youtu.be/0ijD9R3_0Ww
