Adam Abdelnoor PhD CPsychol MBPS
At my Primary school we had assemblies every day. On Thursdays the Head read Pilgrim's Progress, and on Fridays he gave the naughty boys six of the best over his knee, in front of the whole school. It made a huge impression on me. I noticed that it was the same boy every week, and I remember thinking 'this cannot be right'. I was eight. I think that's behind my later interest in doing something about children who fail to thrive in school.
