The Discipline Task Group (DTG) report , Better Behaviour – Better Learning made 36 recommendations aimed at improving discipline in schools, many of which will also impact on violent or threatening behaviour exhibited towards school staff. These recommendations are currently being implemented by the Scottish Executive, local authorities and individual schools following the Joint Action Plan published in December 2001. During 2001-02, the Scottish Executive made available initial funding of £13,000,000 to local authorities to assist with this implementation

It is hoped that the implementation of the DTG recommendations, along with other Scottish Executive initiatives, ensure an effective learning environment for all pupils.
