There is a strict rule that needs to be followed concerning children being picked up from school and if parents cannot pick their children up, meaning someone else picking them up, the school needs to know to avoid any risks of child abduction. Children wait in the school entrance following after school activities, until the correct person arrive to collect the pupil. The duties of supervisory staff e.g. Teaching Assistants are to make themselves familiar with the H+S Act and any other safety issues relevant to their area of work. The School treats Health and Safety seriously, from the playground to the classrooms, the people in the setting are made aware of the risks and told that possible risks are also laminated and put on the walls as an extra reminder of any risks there may be.
Hill further builds up a calm atmosphere by expressing Kipps’ admiration of the house, with the quotes ‘I rather liked this lonely spot’ and his description ‘isolated, uncompromising, but also…handsome’. These quotes foreshadow the isolation that will be felt by Kipps much more strongly later on in the book, but also give a sense of quiet and calm, which further contrasts the din of London. The calm atmosphere starts being subverted when Keckwick leaves Kipps alone in the house for the first time and Kipps begins feeling ‘alone, outside that gaunt, empty house’. This builds tension and strengthens the mood of isolation, as Kipps will encounter the woman in black shortly. Another major factor in the theme of isolation is the Nine Lives Causeway, because it physically stops Kipps from entering and leaving Eel Marsh House with the fog; ‘…a thick, damp sea mist that had come over the marshes and enveloped everything’ (p 73).
Baltimore has one of the highest rates of murdering and crimes. It was ranked one of the top 25 most dangerous cities in the country. With the support and help from their families, with just one year in Africa, it completely changed the boys from their behaviors to their grades. According to the film, “in Baltimore, 61% of African-American boys do not graduate from high school”. One of the film methods Ewing and Grady used to achieve a purpose in the documentary was they put statistics and facts about Baltimore in black backgrounds to demonstrate how serious the problem in Baltimore was.
3.4: Promote children and young people’s positive behaviour. 1.2 Evaluate how the policies and procedures of the setting support children and young people to: * Feel safe- A school should ensure that every child attending the school feels safe. Policies like Safeguarding children ensure that the right procedures are in place to protect children. All staff working within the school should be trained on the correct procedures for safeguarding children. Anti-bullying policies are in place in school to ensure the children know that bullying is not acceptable behaviour but a child should feel confident enough to report an incident if one occurs and should know who they can go to within the school to discuss any such situations.
It is extremely important for the citizens of these gang-infested areas to grasp the totality of the issue and decide to fight against it despite feelings of hopelessness. In 2011, the number of African-Americans under the age of 22 was more than triple the number of U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Sadly, the number of African-American children killed by gunfire since 1979 is more than 13 times the number of Blacks lynched between 1883 and 1968. Since 1969, homicides involving firearms have been the leading cause of death for African-American males between the ages of 15 and 19. The primary cause of violence in the African-American community is gang activity.
“he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, and at night the wond’rous glory of the everlasting stars.” So what has caused this decline in remote area population? Many stereotypes and preconceived ideas of the bush have definitely played a major role. But I think the most important thing for Australians to realise, is Rocking carvings by the Adnyamathanha tribe at Flinders Ranges that the outback has not died. Flinders Ranges is an excellent example of one of the many communities that eat, breathe and sleep Australian culture. Flinders Ranges is a place that reminds us of our original inhabitants, whilst impressing visitors with break taking scenery.
The suicide rate of children between the ages of five and fourteen is eleven times higher than that of twenty-five other countries. Some would say that the United States of America is much too violent. Abuse in America is very bad. An abuser is five times more likely to kill an abused woman if he/she owns a firearm. In addition, in the states with a higher rate of gun ownership, the gun death rate is seven times higher than other states
Breadwinners are lost, families destroyed, more kids grow up without fathers or mothers, welfare costs increase, the entire sex ratio is thrown out of balance and prisoners face grim prospects when released. The hyper-incarceration statistics for African-American males are much worse. We incarcerate one in nine African-Americans between the ages of 20 and 34. In 2003, it was calculated that "At current levels of incarceration newborn black males in this country have a greater than a 1 in 4 chance of going to prison during their lifetimes, while Hispanic males have a 1 in 6 chance, and white males have a 1 in 23 chance of serving time." By 2007, just four years later, the U.S. Department of Justice
The National Committee on Violence (1989) defines racist violence as “a specific act of violence, intimidation or harassment carried out against an individual, group or organisation on the basis of race, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin.” (p.2) Racial violence can take many forms, including harm to people or harm to property. What sets racial violence apart from other types of violence is the motivation behind the behaviour (p. 1). In Australia, there is a long history of racial violence which continues into the present day, and this issue gives no indication of resolving itself in the near future (Winterdyk & Antonopoulos, 2008). Many of these acts are crimes under State or Federal laws, but this wasn’t always so. From the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, the indigenous Australians have been excluded from society and violently persecuted because of their race (Stillwell & Argyrous, 2003).
It lays out what we expect from the parents and what we will give back to them. The Dealing with bullying policy sets out our aims as a school and strategies for dealing with bullying so as to show parents that we will not tolerate it and that we as a school strive to provide a happy and friendly environment with the visions and values that promote positive behaviour and in so doing creating a place in which children and young people are able to learn. 1.2 Our Good behaviour for learning policy states that good teaching and learning are crucial to good behaviour and as a school we pride ourselves in encouraging and inspiring our children to succeed, our Dealing with bullying policy talks about our school curriculum being based around the five outcomes of ECM (Every Child Matters). Both policies are crucial in helping children and young people to: a) Feel safe…by allowing them to know that bullying is taken seriously and not tolerated as stated in the Dealing with bullying policy, it also reassures them that they will be listened to and acted upon. The Good behaviour for learning policy explains what appropriate action will be taken according to each case.
