I have a new child in class with ADHD who can be violent. The other children enjoy winding him up. I would like to introduce something that makes the whole class value each other and respect each other's needs. Any ideas?

A senior teacher is unhappy because I advised a student, who wants to be a doctor, to apply to a local selective sixth form college rather than our own standard mixed comprehensive sixth form. Is the good of the student or the school more important?
