Behaviour Policies & Protocols

Gable Hall School's Behaviour System

At Gable Hall School, our behavior system is designed with careful consideration to create a supportive and conducive learning environment. We'd like to explain the reasoning and rationale behind this system:

All students move through the following stages, each time they are isolated. Gable Hall uses a range of escalating reflection room sanctions. During a period of reflection and isolation, students will not be permitted in lessons; instead, they will work in reflection / isolation in a specially designed room and supervised area by two members of staff. Students may be suspended at any stage on the ladder. Students may also be permanently excluded if the behaviour event is serious enough to merit this consequence. The Principal will make these decisions. HoY's / Pastoral Staff will organise work to be sent home with a student.

Our behavior system at Gable Hall School is intended to foster personal growth, responsibility, and accountability. It is a tool to guide students toward making better choices while maintaining a safe and inclusive educational environment for all. We believe in providing opportunities for students to learn from their experiences and develop into responsible individuals.
