Outwood Grange Academies Trust (OGAT) – which runs five Teesside secondary schools – is introducing a new policy from September.
It comes after an application to the High Court for a judicial review was launched over the trust’s use of a “consequences room” – where children must sit silently in booths – to deal with bad behaviour.
FFS! What are they supposed to use, harsh language?
It was launched after a pupil reportedly spent 60 days in “isolation” at a trust school.
Clearly, that pupil is incapable of learning and should have been expelled.
It’s been claimed it was part of the trust’s strict approach to discipline – which is reportedly known as “flattening the grass”.
God forbid any school have ‘a strict approach to discipline’…
I suppose they’ve been forced to close the Consequences Rooms then?
The new policy renames “consequences rooms” to “reflection rooms” and states if a student is referred there 15 times in one term, they will go before a “behaviour panel”.
