Behaviour gurus sent into schools

Expert behaviour and attendance consultants will be sent into
secondary schools this term to help deal with unruly pupils.

The £75m initiative will involve consultants training senior
staff in every secondary and middle school to identify behaviour
and attendance problems and draw up plans to tackle them.

The consultants are part of a range of measures unveiled by
education minister Ivan Lewis to tackle bullying, improve behaviour
and cut truancy.

Lewis also launched an offensive against bullying, including an
advertising campaign, an anti-bullying charter and regional

“Tell Someone” will reinforce the message that all forms of
bullying are unacceptable and encourage young people to speak out.

A further £5m package of specialist curriculum materials,
training and group intervention work in 3,500 primary schools to
help them promote good behaviour and attendance was also announced.
