Things not going well. I have a meeting with senco next week. 3 detentions in 2 weeks. All went well first half term of Y7, then gone downhill. They only have to have 2 behaviour points for a detention. He now has a report card for next week. I feel like he is sinking fast. What could happen to him??
I think it's a real shame that there is such focus on punishment rather than reward. My DS, at special school, is highly invested in their reward system. Yes, it's possible to get negative marks which could endanger the term behaviour prize (trip to eg laserquest) but they start off with positive points and there is ample opportunity to win back positive points if any get lost in time to still go on the treat.
Talk to the SENCo about why this is happening and what support they are putting in place to prevent it. Also discuss with her whether word can be put around amongst teachers that behaviour points and detentions should be the absolute last resort after they they've put in place all the relevant support. You could if appropriate point out that punishing a disabled child for the effects of his disability is unlawful discrimination.
