Discipline Structure

Our school has a discipline system that has been put in place to ensure the smooth running of the school while respecting the rights of students, parents and staff alike. Our discipline system consists of the following:


Every student carries a diary which contains a copy of the school rules. The diary is used by the student to record homework assignments. Teachers may enter comments about a student's progress and parents may communicate with the school by entering notes. The class teacher reviews the diary once a week and enters a comment.

Class Tutor

Each class is a assigned to a Class Tutor. This teacher meets the class every morning for Roll Call, reviews the student diaries and records all complaints about a student's behaviour. The Class Tutor may contact parents on behalf of subject teachers and occasionally may refer a student to the Year Head . A Class Teacher may refer a student to be placed "on report" for a period of time. Finally the Class Tutor reviews the results of Christmas and Summer Exams and comments appropriately.


When a student is placed on report he/she carries a report sheet to every class of the day. Teachers record comments about the student's progress on a class by class basis. This enables the student to concentrate on his/her behaviour one class at a time and to accumulate a record of progress.


For repeated breaches of classroom rues or general school rules a student may be placed in reflection. This means that the student will spend some time in lunchtime detention filling out a reflection book. This book must then be completed at home and returned next morning.
