School inspectors said yesterday they are worried at a rise in the number of young children being excluded from primary schools for bad behaviour, the Guardian reports (p5).

The paper says that the Office of Standards in Education said an increasing number of schools, even those with broadly satisfactory discipline, found it difficult to cope with the behaviour of individual pupils and were turning to temporary and permanent exclusions.

The inspectors criticised the unacceptably wide variation between what different schools considered should lead to exclusion. And, Ofsted also said that bad teachers contribute to bad behaviour, the Guardian reports.
