New Perspectives ... on Every Child Matters
This course led by Dr Tony Eaude is intended to help those working in primary and nursery schools to explore the challenges and opportunities of ‘Every Child Matters' in their own context and with the children they teach and support to:
• gain a greater awareness of the five outcomes of 'Every Child Matters’, (being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well-being);
• recognise the broader policy context of Every Child Matters, especially for children with Special Educational Needs;
• understand the importance of ethos and the hidden curriculum in developing the whole child; and
• evaluate the strengths of their own provision and consider areas for development by reference to a set of key questions based on the criteria of Ofsted.
The importance of the development of the ‘whole child’ and the whole range of provision in enhancing this are emphasised. Courses are tailored to the particular needs of each school or group of schools but will involve a mixture of practical activities and discussion to explore questions such as:
The course is designed for staff in primary and nursery schools, whether from one school or a group of several and can be run either as a training day or a set of two or three staff meetings. Where there are separate sessions, additional benefit can be gained by the reflection and conversation which occurs, and is encouraged, between sessions.
As with all 'New Perspectives ...' courses, it is hoped that participants will come to see their teaching in fresh and innovative ways, building on and enhancing their professional knowledge and providing new energy and motivation.
