Liddell's School Trail-Blazers in the Battle against Drugs; CLASS WAR: TEACHERS AND CARE WORKERS TO LEAD EDUCATION REVOLUTION


A SCHOOLS revolution is set to help children exposed to drugs in their homes.

Social workers, nurses and community agencies are to be moved into school buildings to identify children who are suffering neglect or are heading for a life of crime.

The Government will today announce five New Community Schools in some of Scotland's most run-down areas - Peterhead, Glasgow, Dundee, Clydebank and Hawick.

The pilot schools will aim to improve exam results and cut down on truancy and crime.

Every pupil will be offered counselling on health and family planning. And parents will be urged to use services in schools including money advice centres, libraries and creches, parents' classes and pensioners' lunch clubs.

The announcement comes after two boys, aged 11 and seven, took drugs to school.

Scottish Education Minister Helen Liddell said: "We will have social workers, trained in dealing with drugs, working alongside teachers and health professionals who can deal not just with the educational aspects of drug abuse but with its consequences."

Local authorities will be invited to bid for a share of pounds 26million for a further 60 projects across the country.

BRAIDFIELD

BRAIDFIELD High School, in Clydebank, covers a poor area. Last year, 14 per cent of its pupils went to uni and fewer than a quarter got jobs.

It has high absence and sickness rates. Last year, every pupil was truant for an average of seven days.

It costs pounds 3351 a year to teach every pupil at Braidfield, which is a regular target for vandals.

BURNFOOT

DESPITE its rural setting Burnfoot Community Primary, in Hawick, whose head is Derek Reid, above, serves a deprived housing estate.
