Peter Peacock - The bottom line is that it's all about inclusion
"Ambitious, Excellent Schools set out a clear direction towards flexibility and allowing teachers to tailor opportunities to the needs of the individual." It was time to push the boundaries and prevent disaffection.
Initiatives such as staged intervention were already allowing teachers to confront indiscipline, Mr Peacock said. "However, I would like more teachers to use the experience of a trained behaviour co-ordinator in the school because, as the report highlights, peer learning and support is a powerful tool."
Ministers will carry out their own survey, taking in pupils' views, early next year.
