In September 2019 the Academy implemented a new behaviour management
system. Students who are issued with a teacher referral (Previously a green slip)
were given sanctions on a progressive scale. These sanctions will be consistent
throughout all subjects at the Academy.
Parents/Guardians are made aware of any sanction issued via an email that will
be sent home. Each time a referral is issued the information should be recorded in
As a guide the following is a basic outline of our new (updated) system, and the
minimum sanctions imposed will be;
Referral 1 – Warning
Referral 2 – Departmental Lunch detention
Referral 3 – Departmental Lunch detention
Referral 4 – After school detention
Referral 5 – After school detention and 1‐week separation
Referral 6 – After school detention and 2‐week separation
Referral 7 and all referrals after – As referral 6.
It is important to remind ourselves here that the behaviour of our students on the
whole is at least good and hopefully for the vast majority the above information is
just that, for information only.
Unfortunately it has been necessary to close the swimming pool from Friday the 4th of October 2019. The two boilers which heat the water in this building (including the pool and our shower blocks) have failed, and are, in this case, beyond repair.
