BEST way to handle behaviour problems.

KEN Roberts, principle education officer for social inclusion, is very excited by the new BEST (behaviour and education support) teams being piloted in Liverpool.

Four secondary schools - Croxteth comprehensive; De La Salle RC High school; Shorefields School, Toxteth, and Parklands School,Speke, have use of the Best teams which consist of a clinical manager, two social workers, a nurse,personal and community development officer,police officer and data ad min worker.

Mr Roberts said: ``It's an expensive resource but it's great to have something like this at our disposal.

``There are no miracle cures but things that could have taken months to sort out, can now be done in days.

``It costs over pounds 1min salaries for these schools alone but ultimately the pay-off for society will be less crime, youth disorder and street crime.

``If parents who are worried about their child's behaviour live in an area with a Best team then great, but if not they should contact the education welfare service or the social inclusion team on 0151-233 3000.''
