VALE OF YORK ACADEMY IS PART OF

Behaviour Focus: Positive Discipline

 

After Easter, Vale of York Academy will be adopting a new behaviour policy based on a system called Positive Discipline (PD), developed by Rodillian School in Wakefield.

This system is founded on rewarding the students who follow and support the rules in school, work hard and engage with their lessons; sanctions are applied to those students who fail to do so. The majority of our students will see the new Behaviour System as giving them the opportunity to gain more rewards that the current system allows.

In preparation for the new system, we are starting to make changes to seclusion after February half term. Seclusion is a serious sanction and is the last stage we have before exclusion; therefore, we want to change the way students are managed in seclusion. After half term, students will spend the whole extended day in seclusion from 8:30–3pm. They will not be allowed to visit the canteen at break or lunchtime, rather they will be given a sandwich choice for lunch which will be brought to them whilst in seclusion.

Any student who spends four times in seclusion, within a term, will be sent a warning letter home, explaining that the next time they are placed in seclusion that it will result in a one day fixed term exclusion.

If you have any queries about this, please contact Mrs Johnston.
