TDA 2.5 Schools as Organisations 1.1 Identify the main types of state and independent schools The main types of state and independent schools are; * Nursery Schools * Primary Schools * Secondary Schools * Community Schools * Specialists Schools * Free Schools * Academies * Church Schools * Private Schools 1.2 Describe the characteristics of the different types of schools in relation to educational stage(s) and school governance. * Nursery Schools have their own head teacher and staff and cater for children aged 3 and 4. They usually attend for 2 to 4 hours per day on 3 or 5 days a week. The children learn from a mix of curriculum based activities and social experience. Some nursery schools are state funded although some can be privately run.
(1:p1) An example of a statutory setting in my area is ***** which provides education for 4-7 year olds. Children start Infants school between the ages of 4-5 and will be in Reception class. Reception year is the last year in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). A voluntary sector is not compulsory and is not funded by the government, but by charities or organisations and in a lot of cases, parents have to pay for their child to attend. They can provide childcare and give the child the opportunity to learn something new.
1. Community schools - These schools are owned by the local authority and have close links to the local community. 2. Foundation and Trust Schools - These schools are run by their own Governing Body and the actual School building is also
The academy trust, which runs the school, employs the staff. Some academies are sponsored by business, other schools or faith groups. * Grammar schools are selective state schools with pupils usually having to pass an exam to get in. * Special schools are for children who have special educational needs which could be physical, communication, learning or behaviour * Free schools are funded by government but don’t have to follow the national curriculum, can set their own staff pay and conditions and can choose their own term dates and school hours. They are not allowed to be academically selective.
A private service in my local area is a private nursery, this means that government does not pay for anything towards it and funds are raised through the people attending. This nursery follows the early years foundation stage and is for children 0 – 5. E2; Describe how each of the types of settings identified in E1 aims to support children and their families. Primary School: By 2010 all schools should provide access to a range of 'extended services' for children, young people and families. A school offering access to extended services works in partnership with its local authority and Children's Trust, as well as with other local schools and partners from the voluntary, community and private sectors, to offer access to: • a varied range of before and after school activities, including study support such as homework clubs, sport, music, arts in a safe place to be for primary and secondary schools • childcare 8am-6pm, 48 weeks a year for primary schools, on school
When a student goes to a public school, the student can learn about the essential subjects from people who know what they're talking about that is if the student chooses to do so. At home school, there is only one (possibly two) teachers; no matter how skilled this teacher is, he or she cannot possibly compare to the diversity achieved in a public school. Another reason for a classroom setting is the benefit of learning within a group setting, some students will excel with this technique. Learning with peers can make all that gibberish in the text book
Nursery school is an educational establishment offering early childhood education to children between the ages of three and five Independent schools: Independent schools (also private schools) are fee-paying private schools, governed by an elected board of governors and independent of many of the regulations and conditions that apply to state funded schools. Some of the older, expensive and more exclusive schools catering for the 13–18 age-range in England and Wales are known as Public schools. Nursery classes provide a stimulating environment which is palnned and organised for the children. Faith schools: Faith schools can be different kinds of schools, eg voluntary aided schools, free schools, academies etc, but are associated with a particular religion. Faith schools are mostly run like other state schools.
Home School vs Public Education Most Americans do not home-school their children. However, those who do, certainly have good reasons. There are advocates on both sides of this educational issue, it is important to understand why some parents choose to home-school their children. Although both can provide a quality education to its students, a student can learn in a social environment therefore leading to his/her overall development. One of the many reasons that home school parents feel passionate about home schooling is their religious beliefs.
When dressing for school in the morning, most students like to have their own personal style. They like to incorporate pieces that reflect how they feel that day. With a uniform policy, it is difficult to express yourself because it limits personal style choices. Most private schools that do use uniforms also do not allow things such as necklaces, bracelets, and other accessories. Students need to be different; this is why only a select few high schools have the policy for uniforms because most students do not want to be told what they can and can’t wear.
Teachers need to ensure the comfort of their students who do not share the same religious view. It does not mean that kids can’t learn about each other’s holiday traditions. There is a big difference between learning about a holiday and letting that holiday consume and control the entire school. If there were Christmas decorations everywhere, the message it would send to the non-Christmas children that they belong there just a little less than Christian children do. Public school officials need to be especially aware at this time of year that the birth of the Christian savior is not recognized or celebrated by all students and families (ADL 2).
