In September 2011 Queen Margaret Academy launched its new discipline strategy.
Pupils are well aware of our ethos and expectation for behaviour and conduct. Our recognition of positive behaviour through a variety of ‘rewards’ has been implemented along with our approach to clearly and consistently deal with breaches of our code of conduct.
However, no system is perfect and we continuously strive to improve our procedures. Therefore, there has been one notable update to the detention system which is detailed below.
Your child has been issued with a letter today detailing that:
If a detention is issued, parents/guardians will now be sent a text alert informing them. Detentions are not issued for minor breaches of indiscipline and we believe it important to keep you updated. If more that 10 detentions are accrued pupils may be formally excluded.
Further details of the policy can be found in the Parents- Better Behaviour, Better Learning section.
