Discipline Procedures

We have a system of consequences that pupils will incur if they break the school’s code of conduct. Pupils will start afresh at the top of the ladder each term but may enter the ‘ladder’ at any step depending on the severity of the rule break. There are two levels to the system—the first a consequence level, the second an exclusion level.

Consequence Level

  • C1 – Teacher gives a verbal warning and records incident in planner.
  • C2 – Teacher passes on concern to the Head of Year and  gives either a written task  OR a break detention.
  • C3 – Head of Year will issue a lunchtime detention and record in pupil planner.
  • C4 – Head of Year will issue an after school detention and record in planner.

Exclusion Level

  • E1 – Pupils placed on white report and face a period of internal isolation.
  • E2 – Pupils placed  on green report and face a period of internal isolation.
  • E3 – Pupils placed on yellow report and face a period of external exclusion.
  • E4 – Pupils placed on red report and face a period of external exclusion.

Parents will be made aware of the level their child is at from the behaviour and detention track pasted into the pupil planner. At the exclusion level parents will also receive a letter and may be invited in to discuss strategies for improvement.
