Primary school bottle-feeds 10-year-olds because they ‘missed out on love’

‘Pupils up to the age of 11 are being bottle-fed and mothered in school as part of a radical new move to address poor discipline.

A state primary school has become the first in the country to take part in the approach, which was developed in the US to give problem children the love and attention they may have missed out on at a younger age.

Instead of being given a sharp telling off or a few minutes on the naughty chair, they have one on one sessions with a trained school therapist.

The children – aged between six and 11 – are bottle-fed like young babies, nursed and encouraged to play games promoting patience and teamwork.’
