This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing. There may be a lot of different things going on when it comes to discipline that a parent of a student with special needs does not understand and this chapter could given them a good insight to the reasons behind the actions. Also it would give parents the resources they need to maybe challenge what the school is doing if the school does end up over stepping their role in disciplining a student
Safegurading the welfare of children and young people 1.2 The different agencies involved in safeguarding in schools are, social services, police, NHS, Brekfast clubs. There intentions are the same but there roles are completely different. Social services role is to make sure that all children are in a happy family enviroment also making sure that they are healthy and that there parents can cope with the childs development stages. Also if a child is off school for a long time or if they keep arriving late to school a teacher will report it to them so they can make a check. The police also make checks on parents/children if they have recived a complaint.
This doesn't happen very happen and each case varies on how critical and important the case was. If the case was that the children were coming to harm on a regular basis then social services would seek to remove the child/children, but they usually give help and advice to the parents to stop any harm coming to the child/children. Wider forms of safeguarding are as follows:- Risk assessments providing safe environments inside and outside the school setting. Procedures and legislation health and safety, fire drills, register, etc. keeping training up-to-date in safeguarding issues.
Agree with the question Paragraph 2 On one hand sociologists would agree that a pupil’s home situation is more important than the type of school they attend. Parents who get involved in the students education by showing an interest and helping with homework are more likely to encourage a child to do well at school. Parental influence can affect someone’s educational achievement as if a student’s parent hated school as a child and didn’t get the grades they needed, it can cause the student to act the same. On the other hand it could cause them to progress better in school as they will want to achieve more than their parents Marxists believe students who come from a working class background tend to do worse than students who come from a high class background; this could be because of material deprivation. This is a big influence on student’s educational achievement as they do not have enough money to buy the necessary equipment for school such as revision guides.
Another ethical issue occurred when the principal allowed the counselor to transport a student home to pick up homework assignments. Typically students are not allotted this privilege and must accept the consequences of not bringing work to school. I considered the possibilities of her explanation to other students who found themselves in the same situation. The principal and I discussed the issue and she explained some special circumstances with this particular child. The situation still made me question the fairness and equitable treatment of all
The next issue on board is that year round school would improve the social life of a student. a. Elaine Warrick-Harris says in her book (Childhood Educaiton) that families have more opportunities to take vacations during the off-season, so they can enjoy lower rates and less-crowded areas; though this may seem helpful some families this may lead to problems in families whose children are on different school calendars b. Since vacation times are staggered and may interfere with system-wide teacher training this can create stress by conflicting schedules will not depreciate the time a teacher is usually home with their family III. Finally the third problem that arises is cost for year round schooling a. Instead of nine months of cafeteria food for the kids it would be a year’s worth, this goes too for the electricity, and also the payroll of the teachers.
I may think that 'shielding' my son from all uncomfortable situations and experiences are in his best interest, because then he wouldn't have to feel any social awkwardness. But, if I "have to" send my son to daycare for financial or professional obligatory reasons, then I would need to look at this from a different perspective. Wouldn't a smaller environment with low student to teacher ratios, a less structured daily schedule- (to allow for possibly more affection, and attention) that probably will not be as readily available once he enters kindergarden, seem like a nice introduction into the beginning of his school experiences? It would make sense to allow him the opportunity to get his feet wet, if you will, in the kiddie pool; rather than to just throw a nervous little boy into the deep
If you really want to stop kids from getting into gangs, the parents just have to support their children and spend time with them to see how they’re doing. If children know they have someone who is going to support them and who cares for them, they may not have to go to the streets and rely on them to survive just to live another day. Like the saying “Every man has good woman behind them” if every kid had good family supporting them everyone’s lives would be much easier. As adults we should understand as we get older there are more responsibilities and things for us to do, but that doesn’t mean that parents don’t support us any more because we’re kids and we are still learning to become adults. (McHugh pg 166) Until we get to the age of not being treated like a child, we won’t need their guidance to make sure that we stay on the right path and are being the best people we can be.
It is an offence to keep children off school without a good reason and may result in the parents being prosecuted. Dealing with conflict and inappropriate behaviour The conflict and inappropriate behaviour policy is set in place because in order for your child to flourish the most when they know how to behave properly and as expected. Children gain this by following the example set by adults both in the setting and at home. Making sure restrictions are kept minimal schools can set boundaries for the health and safety
They now receive different types of care packages from the social services, although people of our community would see this as a positive thing happening for the family, they might not look at it in this way as they are used to caring for their own family on their own without any help from anyone else. The pressure they may feel to live by the book, this pressure could be seen as coercion as the family really didn’t have a choice but to change their way of lifestyle due to ill health of some family members they simply couldn’t travel and carryon the traveller lifestyle. Also the Social Services are making the children go to school which is the norm of our community, in a traveller community education is a choice. All these different things from care packages to education have
