Delta DID ‘flatten the grass’, emails show

Emails seen by Schools Week reveal senior leaders at an academy trust arranged and encouraged support for a controversial approach to behaviour management – although it denied it had any such policy.

Delta Academies Trust insisted it did not have a “flattening the grass” behaviour policy, an approach that caused widespread concern earlier this year after reports of assemblies in which children were humiliated and screamed at. Some were excluded.

However, internal emails show senior leaders preparing for “flattening the grass” assemblies in June 2018, and calling on “strong” colleagues to “support” the process.
