Do you think classes should be set purely on ability (and the needs of pupils catered for) or based on work ethic and compliance? Obviously you would not have pupils who naturally are weak in in the highest set (but then you could have the argument 'obviously you cant have the lazy able kids in the bottom...(well some may say)) Do you think this approach would raise attainment? raise motivation?. My outlook a few years back would be no, but with the GCSE getting more and more 'in reach' of middle ability kids and the poor behaviour is it worth having a streaming system where there was a dumping ground at the bottom of the year who were simply ensuring progress elsewhere. I appreciate this would send ofsted nuts but what are your thoughts?
