Everyone benefits when school children are taught to be polite, respectful and disciplined

Visit some of the country’s best-performing schools, and you’ll notice that many of them have one thing in common:

And of course there’s Michaela, Britain’s “strictest school”, in north-west London. Reading and writing exercises are conducted in silence, and pupils are given demerits for things like forgetting their pens or slouching in class. Last summer, Michaela’s pupils – many of them from disadvantaged backgrounds – famously triumphed in their GCSEs.

We plan to build partnerships between schools that are leading on this issue with those who want to turn their own cultures around, allowing institutions with poor behaviour to learn from those with the best. They will be led by former teacher and behaviour expert Tom Bennett, along with a team of current and former headteachers with broad experience of creating disciplined environments in their own schools.

But, perhaps most importantly, instilling good behaviour in our classrooms would bring the most benefit to pupils themselves, no matter who they are or where they come from. Ill-discipline doesn’t just hold back the brightest pupils, but those most in need of attention, and those who are most likely to fall behind in school when their education is disrupted.
