The dedicated teachers at the Co-operative Academy

The Co-operative Academy in Leeds is in one of the poorest and most diverse areas in the city. Here 75% of students don't speak English as their first language. And more than 60% are eligible for pupil premium funding - for those with low incomes.

That's more than twice the national average. It means teachers here have a very difficult - and sometimes upsetting - job on their hands. Here's the second of Helen Steel's special reports.


Schoolchildren attend anti-bullying event in Bradford

Hundreds attend event

Hundreds of schoolchildren have gathered for an anti-bullying event in Bradford this lunchtime.

The event at City Park is in memory of 11-year-old Asad Khan, who was found hanged in his bedroom last September.

Children will be taking part in a martial arts class led by ju-jitsu instructor Mumtaz Khan who wants to highlight the importance of martial arts as a life skill.

Standing up to bullies

The event was taking place a year on from the death of Asad Khan. An inquest into his death, which heard claims he had been bullied, will resume next month.
