Most Pupils achieve a very high standard of work and behaviour. If you do not reach these standards you can expect the teacher to do the following and your parents to be told at any time.

Possible Sanctions


When a child displays inappropriate behaviour they are reminded of the relevant behaviour that should be displayed.

Verbal Warning

Should the child continue to display inappropriate they will receive a “verbal warning” about the consequences and positive choices they should make.

Time Out

The incident is addressed by the adult, and the pupil may be “timed out”. Break privileges may be withdrawn to enable the pupil to reflect on their actions. This will usually be no longer than five minutes and any work missed will be caught up in the child’s “free time”. A further incident will mean the timeout sheet is sent home to be signed.

Written Warning

In extreme cases or in repetitive scenarios parents will be informed about the incident/s and the intended action to be taken.  This will be recorded in the pupil’s planner.  


During the detention the pupil will complete activities designed to help them reflect on the choices they made with their behaviour.  All teachers and teaching assistants have authority to place pupils in detention.
