A detention is a VERY SERIOUS SANCTION and should be viewed as such. Students may not be placed in detention to do their homework unless the homework has previously been completed and is of an unacceptable standard. Before setting a detention as a sanction, the following strategies may be used. They are not listed in any sequence to be followed but staff will use whichever sanction is appropriate in the circumstances.


1. Warning/verbal intervention from member of staff
2. Note in student disciplinary record book
3. Parents / guardians advised
4. HOD may want to get involved if the problem persists and if behaviour has a negative impact on Teaching and Learning of the subject
5. Sent for counselling

Procedure for Detention

1. When a school detention is set, the detention must first be recorded in the School Detention Book which is kept in Reception. The nature of the offence should be recorded and also any sanctions/measures that must have previously been tried.
2. Once this has been recorded, a letter/email will be sent home to the students parents / guardians.

Rules for Detention Period
