Praise and encouragement should always outweigh sanctions at Trinity; at the same time, all pupils should be aware that the School operates a sanctions system to assist with the maintenance of a proper environment for learning.
Pupils should expect to incur disciplinary sanctions if, in the judgement of the School’s staff, they:
- disrupt the learning of others
- wilfully defy the School’s stated regulations
- cause harm or distress to others through thoughtlessness
- show contempt for people or property
- bring the School community into disrepute when clearly identifiable as a member of the School community
- this includes being on-line and identifiable as a member of the School community
- produce work which is late or clearly inadequate given that pupil’s abilities and the standards required
- Relatively minor infractions of rules (such as late work or littering) can result in sanctions such as a ‘Signing’ (for Lower School boys, in their Term Planner) or a break/lunchtime detention.
- Persistent infringement of the rules (such as constant lateness, untidy appearance, repeated late or inadequate work) or involvement in one-off incidents of reasonable seriousness can be met with a School detention, a Saturday detention (supervised by Senior Staff) or an internal suspension.
- In the Lower School, a lunchtime detention is held on a Friday during lunchtime, with an after school detention where the offence is considered slightly more serious.
- In the Fourth and Fifth Years, poor work or behaviour can result in a Friday afternoon detention.
- In the Sixth Form, unexplained late work and/or inadequate effort results in an Academic Detention held on Friday evenings. This takes precedence over any other School Activities.
- After three such detentions in the Fourth and Fifth Year and Sixth Form there is an automatic Saturday detention.
- More serious misconduct (such as physical aggression towards others, a breach of the rules which results in harm to others, or deliberate discourtesy towards staff) can be met with a suspension from school.
- If a pupil commits a second suspension-level offence within a year of the first or, after repeated warnings, does not improve his/her conduct/effort, the Headmaster and his Deputies will review that pupil’s continued membership of the School.
- A pupil reaching this stage may, at the Headmaster’s discretion, be offered a Behavioural Contract specifying targets to be in order to remain at the School.
- Gross misconduct (such as theft or the use of illegal substances whilst at school) or failure to abide by the terms of a Contract, will lead to the Headmaster permanently excluding the pupil.
All pupils should be aware that disruption of learning and teaching is not tolerated by staff at Trinity, where the highest value is placed on providing an appropriate environment in which pupils can learn. Pupils who deliberately disrupt lessons/activities will be removed from the class/activity and, in the first instance, will be given a Saturday detention. A second incident of this kind within a year will produce an external suspension; a third will result in the Headmaster reviewing that pupil’s continued membership of the School.
The Headmaster and his Deputies reserve the right in their absolute discretion to exclude from the school any pupil whose behaviour, attendance or academic progress is unsatisfactory.
