Aggressive children and stressed out teachers

The behaviour of primary school children is becoming more aggressive while a quarter of teachers are suffering mental health problems as a result.

These and other startling findings are the result of research conducted by the Association of Teachers and Lecturers.

More information and some eye-opening quotes from teachers can be found on its website.

What are your local primary schools doing to combat aggressive behaviour? Perhaps they have specific after-school clubs and proactive programmes, particularly at schools in deprived areas.

Also, try and speak to current and former teachers to get their take.
