COVID-19 Advice from B&A regarding addendum to Behaviour Policy
We suggest that schools add a paragraph to their behaviour policy to cover situations which may arise due to Covid19. This should be published on the school website. Whilst we would hope to avoid any permanent exclusion during lockdown, there has been the occasional breach of policy where a sanction is required for the health and safety of others. Any exclusion, fixed period or permanent, should be a last resort where all other strategies have failed.
Suggested Addendum to School Behaviour Policy due to Covid19. May 2020
Children who attend a school on a temporary basis because of coronavirus (COVID-19) will still be pupils for all purposes other than registration. For example, they will still be pupils for the purposes of the school’s SEN, safeguarding and school medical duties. The school will be able to apply its normal behaviour policy to such children.
Refusal to follow social distancing and other associated health and safety measures will be considered a breach of the school’s behaviour policy.
The school will be happy to work with parents/carers to address these issues where a pupil’s behaviour is impacted by any special needs or disabilities.
