Sanctions and Consequences


The following outlines how the severity of sanctions increase as behaviour becomes increasingly unacceptable, either through persistence or seriousness.

Sanctions are used by the school to challenge inappropriate behaviour and to support students in making the correct choices in line with the School Ethos. Whilst the management of a students behaviour must take into account individual circumstances and needs, we expect students to follow our school ethos:

School Ethos:
Everyone Matters
We expect our community to be polite and respectful
Everyone Helps
We expect our community to make sensible choices
Everyone Succeeds
We expect our community to work hard

In the classroom/out of the classroom

  1. 1. First warning issued to student.
  2. 2. Final Warning issued to student.
  3. 3. Consequence issued – this can be a break time detention, lunchtime detention or an After School at the judgement of the teacher.

If issues continue further action may be taken, such as moved to another classroom, removed by patrol, referral to the student support team.


After School Detentions

At Rainford we a run a ‘next day’ after school detention system. If a student receives an after school detention, they will be required to stay until 4pm on the next school day in E008.

Parents/Carers will receive a text message that evening informing them of the detention.

If a student fails to turn up for the after school detention, it will be escalated to an extended Senior Leadership Team detention on the following day until 4:30pm.

If a student is persistently missing detentions then parents will be contacted and the student will be internally excluded in the behaviour hub, which finishes at 4:30pm each evening. The student support team will contact you regarding how they can support your child in improving their behaviour for learning.

Consequences for persistent poor behaviour or serious incident

Internal Exclusion to the Behaviour Hub
Fixed Term Exclusion
Permanent Exclusion

For students who we have ongoing behaviour concerns, we will consider an Individual Behaviour Plan and a Pastoral Support Plan.
