This was established in both Cedar Rapids Community School District v. Garret, 119 S.Ct. 992, (U.S. 1999); and Roncker v. Walter, 700 F.2d 1058, (1983). In the Cedar Rapids case, the student was dependent on a ventilator, and his mother asked the school to provide the necessary health service for him to attend school. The school district argued that their responsibilities did not include the necessary one on one nursing services that would be required throughout the day. The court determined that the school could not depend on the financial aspect to define related service or to exclude medical service.
The behaviour policy is simply a set of guidelines on how school staff should deal with their students’ behaviour. This policy usually includes information such as the code of conduct, rewards and sanctions, how the school deals with conflict and inappropriate behaviour, the anti-bullying policy etc. Most schools have a code of conduct. The code of conduct are a clear set of rules as to how the children should behave in and around schools. These rules are sometimes written in a way that they can be like targets for the children e.g.
How anti-discriminatory practice is promoted in health and social care settings: Ethical Principles- Justice: Justice is when an individual or group of people are punished for acting in a manner which is not appropriate or more seriously, a crime that they may have committed. Therefore justice is a means of promoting anti- discrimination, as individuals will learn not to discriminate if they get justice. As well as this it will make the person who was discriminated against feel like they are right in the feeling that they should not be treated in this manner. An example of this within a health and social care setting is a pupil in a school making a racial comment towards another pupil or teacher who was a different race to them. Therefore the pupil being sent to the head teacher and being punished for this would be them receiving justice.
The study indicated labelling goes on and that the labels are used to pre-judge pupils potential. P177 Problems with this approach- Ethical-can be problems with deception. Practical getting hold of teachers and pupils, gaining access. Artificiality- tells us little about real interaction in the classroom. Field experiments- located in real settings- Rosenthal and Jacobsen- Pygmalion in the classroom focuses on labelling,
Lucinda Griffin Zero Tolerance The zero tolerance policy was put in place to help keep students and their schools safer. This policy is causing problems with students. The policy is here to keep unsafe objects and violence out of school, to help keep everyone safe from harm, and bullying. The zero tolerance policy has become unfair to the students and teachers. The zero tolerance policy has a need to be revised.
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.
* Help establish a sense of personal and social identity. | b) Consider your answer a) explain the possible different responses from other youth related services.Other youth related services have different goals to youth work so the ways they support young people sometimes differ. Schools have targets set by their local authority which means they are have to focus mainly on the academic aspect of a young person’s development. To reach these targets teachers have to constantly put pressure on pupils to succeed in assessments and exams, and are therefore unable to take into account other pressures in their lives. As a consequence of this they are expected to deal out punishments in accordance with the schools behavior management policy to ensure that learning progresses at a pace
The purpose of this report is to analyse the Western Australia Department of Education, Duty of Care for Students Policy, 2007, and to highlight how the policy can be applied using specific scenarios, how the policy can be implemented, and what preventive measures can be taken to ensure that students are protected from harm through reasonable care. The Western Australia’s Department of Education Duty of Care for Students Policy, defines a set of principles, that are imposed by law, that specify the care that should be taken to minimise the risk of harm to another (Western Australia Department of Education, 2012, p. 9.). The Duty of Care Policy leverages off three basic statements that define exactly what the policy is; (a) Teaching staff
The inquest found the child’s death an incident of natural causes, contributed to significantly by neglect’. The hearing brought forward a lack of policy and training at the school on the nature of asthma, and what school staff are required to do to protect pupils in their care. It is greatly important that schools employ appropriate health and safety policies which clearly state the schools duties and responsibilities and monitor and ensure that staff adhere to these polices, staff need to receive relevant training and development in order to act out their responsibilities effectively. Removing all risks from a child’s environment may risk crippling and restricting their learning and development however there are always going to be risks that quite obviously need to be avoided in order not to be deemed incompetent in our role by failing to protect from obvious dangers, however situations like using equipment in the park, going up and down stairs using a hammer are activities which may enhance the child’s learning and understanding of managing in the world they live in, it is equally as important to give a child the opportunity to experience a certain level of risk to improve their own competence, confidence and independence in making their own decisions in risk taking. Children are not always aware of health and safety
Introduction: This report will identify the importance, related issues and the people subject to the Duty of Care policy issued by the Government of Western Australia Department of Education 26 June 2007. The report will address three scenarios upon which the policy would have an impact and describes measures that a school and teacher could take to ensure that the requirements of the policy document are met. The first scenario refers to inadequate supervision of students in the morning before the commencement of school. The second scenario refers to unsafe playground equipment. The third scenario refers to inadequate supervision of students on the playground.
