From an article on BBC <Ref>Secrets behind children's home, BBC, February 2008</Ref>

As an Industrial School, Haut de la Garenne was intended to solve problems of juvenile delinquency, by removing poor and neglected children from their home environment and placing them in a boarding school.

Solitary confinement

According to local historians, good behaviour was rewarded by treats, like cricket on the common and tea and cakes.

Poor behaviour led to deprivation of some sort, with flogging or solitary confinement for the worst offenders.
