Houghton Regis Academy

Academy Discipline

For the Academy to run efficiently and for pupils to gain the most out of the education offered a high standard of discipline is expected at all times. Anti-social or disruptive behaviour will be dealt with promptly and sanctions imposed.

All staff are expected to encourage high standards of behaviour, work and dress. Staff are vigorously supported to achieve these expectations by Middle Leaders and the Senior Leadership Team. Parents are also involved as quickly as possible, so that home and the Academy can continue to work in partnership to solve problems that may arise.

We are proud of the high standards of discipline we set and achieve. All pupils are encouraged to develop an enquiring mind, a sense of purpose and a determination to work hard. At the centre of the Academy’s code is respect and consideration for other people and their property.  A system of merit awards exists to reward excellence in its various forms.

Rewards and Sanctions

At the Houghton Regis Academy pupils are rewarded for their positive contributions to the Academy, good attendance and for outstanding academic achievement. We recognise the importance in praising pupils and inspiring them to do better.

Through the use of verbal praise and Purple Points, pupils receive recognition for their achievements.

To support pupils in their educational journey, we may also have to issue sanctions. These range from detentions through to fixed term exclusions. 

All staff are expected to encourage high standards of behaviour, work and dress. Staff are vigorously supported to achieve these expectations by Heads of Year, Heads of Department and the Senior Leadership Teams of the Academy. Parents are also involved as quickly as possible, so that home and the Academy can continue to work in partnership to solve problems that may arise.
