It will work to ensure that there is complete impartiality in all matters and that proven ability is the only measure of judgement. Brushstroke will also aim to encourage this good practice with those external organisations with which it works.
Our PolicyIt is our aim to create conditions whereby candidates / trainees are judged solely on the basis of their merits, abilities and potentials, regardless of gender, colour, ethnic or national origin, age, socio-economic background, disability, religious or political beliefs, family circumstance, sexual orientation or other irrelevant distinction.
Anti-Bullying Policy Brushstroke is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our pupils so they can learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at Brushstroke. If bullying does occur, all pupils should be able to tell us and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell the staff.
Disciplinary ProcedureThis procedure is designed to deal fairly and appropriately with possible performance and conduct issues on the part of students of the school. Minor performance issues and misconduct will be dealt with informally by advice or constructive criticism but where necessary a more formal procedure will be used as follows. In the interests of fairness, proportionality and efficiency the procedure set out in this note may be adapted in appropriate cases in the discretion of the School.
Stage 1 – Formal Oral WarningThis will often apply for less serious misconduct or where performance remains unsatisfactory. It may follow from persistent failure to respond to informal warnings or advice about such matters as time keeping or performance. Where a formal oral warning is issued this will be recorded on your file. The warning will indicate how long it will remain on your disciplinary record.
Stage 2 – First Written WarningIf misconduct is more serious or persistent or if your performance or conduct remains unsatisfactory following a previous warning, a First Written Warning may be appropriate.
Stage 3 – DismissalIf you either commit an act of gross misconduct, fail to improve following a First Written Warning, as detailed in Stage 2, or commit a further misdemeanor following a previous warning, you may be dismissed.
