Seven grant-maintained schools are to receive government funding of £1 million over three years to trial new ways of tackling discipline and behaviour problems among pupils, education and employment minister Eric Forth announced today.

Starting on 1 January 1997, the schools will pilot school-based centres for pupils at risk of exclusion. They will run in parallel to similar projects being funded in LEA-maintained schools.

Mr Forth said: 'School-based centres are a preventative measure. They are a way of keeping pupils at risk of exclusion in mainstream schooling while their individual problems are being tackled.

'These projects will provide an excellent basis for identifying and promoting models of good practice. All schools will be able to learn from what proves most effective.'

The selected GM schools are: Dormers Wells Junior School, Southall Cheyne Middle School, Sheerness, Kent Lea Manor (Language) College, Luton Noel-Baker Community School, Derby Thorpe Bay School, Southend The Grays School, Grays, Essex St Thomas the Apostle College, Peckham.
