Detentions - A Process for Reflecting on Behaviour that Affects Learning
Detentions are held at Mount Hutt College on Tuesday and Thursday second lunch times in E3, between 1.35pm and 2.05pm.
Names for detention are entered by staff into the detention data base.
Detentions are supervised by senior staff members.
Failure to attend a school detention without an acceptable reason to their Dean prior to the detention, will result in another detention.
Attendance at detention takes priority over other commitments, with the exception of students who are taking part in a whole class detention.
If a student fails to attend their lunchtime detention, they will be placed into the isolation room during the first lunch break on the following day.
If students fail to attend this isolation catch up, they will be placed into isolation for up to ½ day by a Dean or member of SLT.
It is the student's responsibility to have eaten lunch prior to detention.
Students are to provide their Student Diary and pen and will have their diary stamped (on that date) to inform parents they had a detention.
In a detention students will complete a restorative written worksheet.
Any student who accumulates 3 lunchtime detentions in any one term will go to an after school detention (negotiated between the Dean and the family) for the remainder of the term plus placed on a Behaviour card. As part of respectful practice, deans will notify primary caregivers by text via Kamar.
