Sanctions related to uniform

The request was successful.

Dear Hodge Hill Girls' School, Birmingham,

Under the FOI Act I would like to request the following information regarding sanctions and other punishment (e.g. detention, isolation, withdrawal of privileges, expulsion, exclusion) issued by the school in relation to uniform.

1) Please provide a breakdown, for each of the last five academic years, including the current academic year, of all punishments issued for misconduct relating to uniform (e.g. wearing wrong uniform, not wearing uniform, wearing forbidden items, etc). For each incident please provide:
The nature of the punishment
The nature of the misconduct
Whether it related to school uniform or sports kit or another aspect of uniform policy

If you are unable to provide a breakdown of each incident, please provide summary totals for each academic year with the same breakdown.
If you are unable to provide annual totals, please provide details of the system used to track student behaviour and how that is monitored by staff, e.g. how they are able to identify those students who have been sanctioned most often.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Kelleher

Hodge Hill Girls' School, Birmingham

Dear Michael Kelleher
Thank you for your request please see the following information.

 1. Please provide a breakdown, for each of the last five academic years,
including the current academic year, of all punishments issued for
misconduct relating to uniform (e.g. wearing wrong uniform, not
wearing uniform, wearing forbidden items, etc). For each incident
please provide:
The nature of the punishment
The nature of the misconduct
Whether it related to school uniform or sports kit or another aspect
of uniform policy

 

We are not able to provide this as some of the requested information could
lead to identification of pupils if shared more widely i.e. some people
may know who has received what sanction etc. – we are therefore applying a
section 40 exemption regarding personal data

 

 2. If you are unable to provide a breakdown of each incident, please
provide summary totals for each academic year with the same breakdown.

From the start of term to the present date (02/11/22) there have not been
any negative logs regarding uniform.

In the academic year 2021-2022 there were not any cases logged.

In the academic year 2020-2021 there were 22 cases logged.

In the academic year 2019-2020 there were not any cases logged.

In the academic year 2018-2019 there were fewer than 5 cases logged.

 

 3. If you are unable to provide annual totals, please provide details of
the system used to track student behaviour and how that is monitored
by staff, e.g. how they are able to identify those students who have
been sanctioned most often.

The school uses a system called ClassCharts to track both positive and
negative events. Incorrect uniform is an option to choose when logging an
event
