Gove wants 'military ethos' in schools

The boost is part of a wider aim to bring military ethos into the education system, including expansion of the school-based cadets; developing the Troops to Teachers programme; and a rise in the Service Children Premium for Service Children.

Every child can benefit from the values of a military ethos.

Self-discipline and teamwork are at the heart of what makes our Armed Forces the best in the world - and are exactly what all young people need to succeed.

Exclusion from school should never mean exclusion from education.

These projects are helping pupils in alternative provision reach their full potential and are helping to close the attainment gap.

– Education Secretary Michael Gove
