Student injury is something that schools can/will unfortunately deal with on a regular basis. It is important that schools have plans in place to prevent the possibility of being liable for student injury. Yell (2016), list the responsibility schools have to avoid liability for student injury • Develop written school district polices regarding care and supervision on students- These can typically be found in your district and schools staff handbooks • Train administrators, teacher, paraprofessionals, and other staff responsible for care and supervision of students- This can be done through building and district wide professional development opportunities • Have the IEP team address potential safety risk for students with disabilities- This can be done though a safety plan. It is also important that will be using confidentiality that IEP teams inform the rest of the school of possible safety risk for the student in the even the student would be around then. When I write plans for kids on how we are going to address different behaviors we see with students in the classroom, I have all preschool paras and both morning and afternoon teachers read the plans, in the event they would have to cover in the class they aren’t normally in.
Within this theoretical discussion I will address how current principles of early years’ pedagogy have been affected by the work of pioneers of early years’ education. Modern day Early Years Education has been hugely influenced and built upon the ideas and theories of historic and current pioneers and legislation. The statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage is a legal document that sets out the standards required for the development, care and learning of children aged birth to 5 years. The EYFS must be followed by all schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers. Within the EYFS it is stated that “Every Child deserves the best possible start in life and support that enables them to fulfil their potential” and therefore
The U.S. Department of Education mission is to “promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering education excellence and ensuring equal access” (“Progress in Our Schools”). Standardized testing is a form of testing that aids students develop better understanding through testing which leads to student achievement and success in the future. Student achievement should be the main priority in any school because children are our future. For years, standardized testing has been a controversial topic amongst students, parents, and
Their goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages. Ofsted report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They have responsibility for inspecting maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education, inspecting childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training, publishing reports of their findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training, regulating a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people, reporting to policymakers on the effectiveness of these
Quote of Interest: "First, each person is unique. In defining goals, it is crucial for educators to affirm the special characteristics of each student." (Boyer, 1995, p. 1) Reaction: I chose this quote because I plan on being a special education teacher and I have strong feelings about making sure everyone is fair to everyone. We are all different and everyone should get their own accomidations depending on whether they need help or not. Connection: I also chose from the book Flip Your Classroom (2012), because Sams and Bergmann explain more about different testing ideas for students that need extra time, read outloud, etc.
Being taught the proper way to speak about disabilities really helps, I am now trying to speak in “ Person first” so as not to discriminate or place a stigma upon a person’s shoulders. When I eventually become a teacher all the new information I learned about diversity and disabilities in SED 125 such as knowing that not all children learn the same way or that some children may have a bigger struggle than others, and how to build healthy positive relationships with my future student. I will try to apply all the new information to my classroom
Meaning, that if a public education school district was thriving for all their students to meet just the satisfactory threshold, then adequacy is what the public education school district should be using their resources on to aim for that goal. However, I thought the goal for public education was to make sure that our students were receiving a top-notch education, one that
After reading, “CALISTHENICS for a Child 's Mind” by Ingrid Wickelgren and “Getting Preschool Right” by Melinda Wenner Moyer I became very educated on a subject I was unfamiliar with. Additionally, I believe we should support and put more focus towards improving preschools for high risks populations. Preschools are where children learn essential life skills that create the building blocks for the child’s education in the future. The article, “Getting Preschool Right” states that “In a 2001 study, researchers at the University of Virginia found that the quality of children 's relationships with their kindergarten teacher predicted various academic and behavioral outcomes in eighth grade. "Whatever happens in children 's first educational
The standards that will be discussed have been chosen as they are relevant to the protection of children against abuse in a care setting. The first standard to be discussed is that of Standard Four, Children’s Rights. Under Standard Four there is a procedure in place informing young people on how to make a complaint or express any concerns they may have about their care. When a young person makes a complaint either on their own or with the help of a second party they are informed as to how it will be dealt with. The appropriate persons in the Health Service Executive are immediately notified of any serious complaints.
Clinical Procedure Guidelines for Connecticut School Nurses is a merger and update of the two documents, and is a detailed resource noting responsibilities and procedures for care of students by a school nurse in Connecticut (State Department of Education, 2018). Many of the early policies and laws that were created in the United States were based on children who had special needs and illness, and the strides taken were to ensure that each child gets equal
