Misbehaving pupils face the prospect being of being told to pick up litter or write out lines hundreds of times under plans by Education Michael Gove for a return to traditional classroom discipline.
New guidelines for teachers, to be issued this week, will say that "tough but proportionate" punishments such as writing lines "are just as crucial to an effective education as praising and rewarding good behaviour", The Mail on Sunday reported.
Penalties could include picking up litter in the playgrounds, weeding, tidying classrooms and removing graffiti. Pupils could also be ordered to report to school early or forfeit privileges such as joining in a non-uniform day.
