Is your child skilful or unskilful when it comes to their behaviour in school?  

Loughborough Amherst School in Leicestershire has banned their teachers from using the words good and bad when it comes to describing students' behaviour.  

Instead, they now use the words "skilful" and "unskilful", which is apparently from Buddhism and is a "less loaded and more accurate way" of describing things and is to prevent the students from feeling guilty.  

Deputy Academic Head at Loughborough Amherst School Richard West joined Mike Hosking.
