Teacher essay summary


This essay aimed to discuss the law, policies and procedures that promote health & safety in care settings. The writer appears to have good basic knowledge of relevant law & policy but it is hard to be sure because of the ideas not being expressed very well. The writing style was in need of improvement because of frequent lack of punctuation, and grammatical errors. There were a few comments (page 2) which needed clarifying ? a few more examples to illustrate points were needed.
I would have liked to have seen examples from other settings such as a hospital or nursery which would evidence the ability to think more widely.
