Children still stressed
Cases of stress, associated self-harming, anorexia, aggression and bullying were all found to be on the rise, with 73 per cent of teachers questioned saying they believe children are under more pressure than 10 years ago.
Elsewhere, grotty toilets and grim buildings were also highlighted as a major gripe of teachers in Wales. A third of teachers nationally complained about poor toilets for pupils in a separate survey. "The state of many school buildings in Wales is nothing short of a national scandal," said Dr Dixon.
