Guides and advice

Violence, threatening behaviour and abuse

This practical, easy-to-use guide gives all the advice you need on dealing with violence, threatening behaviour and abuse in an education setting.

Student property

Confiscating pupils' property is a legitimate sanction provided that there is a good reason for so doing (as set out in the school rules) and that the length of time the article is confiscated is reasonable.

Sanctions and discipline

The school or college discipline policy should state clearly what sanctions are available and who has the power to impose them.

Managing behaviour

The government guidance on the Education and Inspections Act 2006, gives all staff in maintained schools in England and Wales legal rights to discipline pupils. This page provides an overview of those powers.

Detentions

The Education and Inspections Act 2006 sets out clear rules as to who can give a detention, when it can take place, what notice must be given and whether parents can opt out.
