Schools in London and around the UK urged to improve discipline

30/09/2009 Joanna
The Department for Children, Schools and Families will also issue a new leaflet for parents warning them to take more responsibility for their children's behaviour.

The measures will be unveiled by children's secretary Ed Balls at the Labour Party Conference this week as part of the Behaviour Challenge.

Speaking at the Brighton meeting, Mr Balls will say: "Parents want their children to go to an orderly school with a strong headteacher who won't tolerate bullying or disruptive behaviour in the classroom.

"Our new Behaviour Challenge will ensure that every school has good discipline. And, we will back head teachers, and expect all parents to back teachers too, so they have the confidence to use their powers to the full so they can get on and teach and all children can learn."

The measures were originally set out in the government's education White Paper, published in June.
