Headteacher will propose centre for disruptive pupils

19/06/2009 Joanna
A Nottingham headteacher will today propose the creation of a new centre designed to help more disruptive pupils.

The idea will be put to a conference of teachers by John Dyson of Westbury school in Aspley, reports.

The £350,000 initiative will help deal with up to 18 of Nottingham's more challenging students by diagnosing their problems and offering them expert help.

Gareth Owen, headteacher at Hadden Park high school, has lent his support to the scheme and notes it is something other headteachers have also been involved with.

"With the centre, there is a means of bringing examples of best practice and expertise at dealing with these issues together, as well as considering economies of scale," Mr Owen claimed.

Students with special needs and those who are more disruptive often remain with their own classes.

Advisory group Teachers Network says by including more group activities, which let these students progress at their own rate, the time it takes for them to complete each task can be reduced.ADNFCR-2164-ID-19226251-ADNFCR
