Example text

To this end also, the staff of both schools are closely involved in pupils’ reintegration programmes, by working closely with parents, social workers and mainstream schools to make such programmes successful. Although they share much in common, the schools differ in certain important ways. Farfield offers some of its pupils fifty-twoweek-a-year placements, whilst Lakeside caters for pupils in term 46 The experience of disaffection times only. The schools also differ philosophically, with Lakeside employing a number of formal arrangements intended to give pupils a sense of community involvement, through the allocation of specific maintenance tasks around the school, and participation in group decision-making exercises.

38 Background issues One could be forgiven, in the face of these developments, for seeing the traditional residential provision for children with behaviour problems as the ‘dinosaurs of the education system’ (Cole, 1986). The enlightenment which is evident in the development ‘of whole school approaches’ to disruption (Charlton and David, 1990), the availability of behavioural techniques and other approaches which can be used to tackle problems in situ, and the thrust of educational policy towards the integration of pupils with special educational needs, make residential provision appear not only anachronistic, but also a relatively expensive luxury of dubious effectiveness (Topping, 1983).

Similarly, this medical approach defined ‘maladjustment’ in psychiatric terms. It is from this psychiatric base that the dominance of the psychodynamic approach to maladjustment stems. Medical officers, who were responsible by statute for deciding who was ‘maladjusted’ and what 34 Background issues arrangements for their education were appropriate, saw the psychodynamic approach as indispensable in the treatment of maladjustment. Thus when we come to note the change in emphasis from the psychodynamic orientation to the behavioural approach to the treatment of maladjusted pupils (Laslett, 1983) which occurred in the 1970s, we find this to be related less to the relative merits of these different approaches than to changes in the administrative arrangements concerning pupils with special educational needs.
