Section A: Professional Framework

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Section A: Professional Framework (1) "Being in loco parentis means you have to do what parents want." Briefly (i.e. 50 - 100 words) discuss the accuracy of this statement, with reference to the legal framework. The term loco parentis means 'standing in place of parents.' However, this does not necessarily mean...you have to do what parents want, as it may not be in the child's interest. If teachers follow the statutory requirements (Children Act 1989 and Human Rights Act 1998) and do all they can to protect and encourage the child's welfare, then they are acting within the laws of their profession. Their duty of care will not have been breached if they have applied their professional judgement, training and experience. By following these guidelines they will not be negligible. (2) STATEMENT TRUE NOT TRUE a) A school may only impose a detention if parents agree to it ( b) A school must publish its disciplinary code ( c) Parents are entitled to a minimum of 24 hours' notice of a detention ( d) Teachers have the right to confiscate any item of pupils property ( e) ...read more.

Middle

The school draws up a written statement, which includes guidelines on the amount of homework that is required (b) Briefly discuss (i.e. 50 -100 words) the DFEEs claim that a Home-School Agreement will help parents and teachers work more effectively together: A H.S.A encourages parents to become more involved with their child's time at school, which involves supporting their spiritual, moral, cultural and social development. It encourages parents and teachers to communicate effectively, for example by discussing any social or academic problems their child may have encountered. It also provides parents with the opportunity to discuss what they expect from the school and to contact the headteacher or governing body if the school fails to meet the H.S.A. Furthermore it emphasises the importance of good behaviour, attendance and punctuality, which will help their child to develop qualities that are valued by employers. SECTION B CASE STUDIES B1 Although the school has chosen to open its doors at 8.30 a.m. the school day does not start until 8.50 a.m. Arrangements therefore have to be made to supervise early arrivals. In this case if a teacher has not volunteered to supervise, before the school day begins then they cannot be held accountable. ...read more.

Conclusion

In this case changing the setting arrangements... is purely in the interests of both sexes as studies have shown that boys and girls respond differently to different stimulus materials. B6 In this case the teacher only appears to have heard 'raised voices' and not exactly what words have been exchanged. The headteacher would have to be informed. If the girl did tell the Lunchtime Supervisor to F***Off, then this would be regarded as unacceptable behaviour, as it clearly undermines the authority of the supervisor and the school. Disciplinary action would have to be enforced. However, if the supervisor was acting unprofessionally and had provoked the girl by 'speaking rudely' to her then this matter may need to be discussed privately with the headteacher. As the Children's Act 1989 states "that a person who has care of a child must do all that is reasonable under the circumstances to safeguard or promote the child's welfare."
