Hi All, we work to the principle of an adjustment to need but school sanctions are school sanctions. I always work to the principle of what adjustment gets the point across and what support do we do as well. But if a sanction is needed a sanction is needed as this is the real world and if a mainstream school then the rules are the rules for ALL students. However the sanction might not be all day. So if a fight occurs rather than a day in isolation with all other students it might only be 1 period but then the rest of the day with their form tutor or in the SEN office. This being an adjustment to meet their Sen needs. It might be that an adjustment is a managed detention or additional support but at the very least at least 1 period related to what other students would get as a school sanction. Hope this helps on one way to support.
