Q: The DfE would encourage schools to, essentially, apply the same rewards and sanctions post 16 as ur would in ks 3 and 4?
Internal exclusion? Break, lunch, after school detention? Direct contact with patents?
Please confirm decision I read where a pupil presenting serious Behaviour problems in year 11 was then granted admission to 6th form, contrary to wishes of school's slt? This decision was backed by Dfe?
With obligation for pupil's to stay in Education until age 18 it is likely that schools and colleges will increasingly be faced with Disruptive and disengaged pupils post 16.
Is there any specific guidance for schools re: how best to preempt the potential Behaviour problems presented by post 16 pupils in schools and colleges?
DfE answers: Yes, we'd suggest that detention, contacting parents and reiterating the homeschool agreement that many schools use are all ways of managing behaviour. I have no information on a decision of a particular schoolLocal Authority on an admission.
In our literature searches we have found little research evidence on the standard of behaviour post-16 (whether sixth form or FE colleges) and very little on the effective strategies used to combat it. However, we published the behaviour topic note "Pupil behaviour in schools in England" in June and Chapters 2 (2.4) and 3 (3.1) refer to perceived standard of post-16 behaviour - https:www.education.gov.ukpublicationsRSGpublicationDetailPage1DFE-RR218
