IN an attempt to improve behaviour at schools across England, schools with the best discipline will team up with those where improvement is needed.
The Government has put together a team of experts to lead a new programme to improve discipline. Some tactics could include banning mobile phones and making pupils line up in silence before entering classrooms, although experts say that what works in one school won’t necessarily work in all.
“Pupils learn best in an environment where there are no excuses for bad behaviour,” said Education Secretary Gavin Williamson.
The Department for Education is looking for around 20 schools that have excellent standards of behaviour. These lead schools will then support another 500 over the three-year programme, by sharing ideas that have worked for their pupils.
