Kelly to tackle disruption in schools

    Education secretary Ruth Kelly is expected to make an
    announcement today aimed at tackling disruptive pupils in schools,
    writes Clare Jerrom.

    Kelly is expected to spell out Labour’s plans for tackling
    disruption in schools at the newly appointed secondary
    head-teachers conference in Blackpool this afternoon.

    A Department for Education and Skills spokesperson said the
    speech would be centred around “zero tolerance and behaviour
    issues”.

    The Conservative party has already pledged to “restore
    discipline in schools and give parents the opportunity to choose
    the best school for their child”.

    The Tories have made action on schools one of their key election
    themes and have promised to give head-teachers the power to expel
    disruptive pupils within the first day of a Conservative
    government.
