Behaviour Management Policy

 

All children and young people have a right to be treated with respect and dignity even in those circumstances where they display difficult or challenging behaviour.


Adults should not use any form of degrading treatment to punish a child. The use of sarcasm, or demeaning or insensitive comments towards children and young people is not acceptable in any situation. Any sanctions or rewards used should be part of a behaviour management policy which is widely publicised and regularly reviewed.


This means that adults should:

 

  • be sensitive to the needs of children and young people. Take care not to embarrass or humiliate them in any situation.
  • not use isolation as a form of punishment
  • remember that children and young people do not have to participate in Phoenix activities. While we try to encourage positive behaviour, we are not in a position to punish those that do not conform to expected behaviour. Parents/carers should be contacted and informed if any such situations arise.

 

The use of corporal punishment is not acceptable. Whilst there may a legal defence for parents who physically chastise their children, this does not extend, in any circumstances, to those adults who work with or on behalf of children and young people.
