New Behaviour Management System

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
student planners.
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.

Subject Ambassadors

One of several changes and developments at the Academy over the past year has been the introduction of our subject ambassadors. A new initiative to give students more input and responsibility within their school community.

In years 8-13 each academic subject nominates two students in every year group to represent them as a department. Currently we have over 200 subject ambassadors within the Academy.

Whilst each specific subject area will have its own individualised roles and responsibilities for the students there are also some whole school expectations of the ambassadors, for example, representing their department at the Academy open evening in September.

Students gain a huge amount from the role, including developing their initiative, organisational skills and teamworking ability. Specifically, for our 6th form students it gives them an additional aspect to include on their UCAS application.

In the future we hope to develop a Subject Ambassadors webpage linked to the Academy website where students will be able to write and post ‘blogs’ about what is going on in their particular area.

This area is very much a developing progress and it is very much a case of watch this space…….
