Schools in England and Wales appear to have become an 'unfunded branch of social services' according to the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, The Times Educational Supplement reports (p10).

In a recent report the association said teachers were often having to deal with the effects of social dislocation on their pupils, especially in poorer communities.

The report called for government funds to provide for the placement of social workers in schools serving 'deprived areas' or attach one to a 'cluster' of schools.
