Understanding the Child
- Improve support for young people
- Build staff knowledge
- Save time for all in the school
The guidance you need
Anyone who works with children and young people needs to have a good understanding of a wide range of needs that children have, including medical, social, cultural and developmental issues. Although there is a lot of guidance available from various sources, it can be time-consuming and difficult to find the exact information you need to deal with a particular situation.
A resource for the whole workforce
Understanding the Child is a new reference source designed for anyone who works with children or young people. It provides clear, precise information on all the needs that children may have, giving detailed explanations that make it very accessible for even non-specialists.
How it works
The resource is delivered online – schools who purchase an annual subscription receive a password which they can distribute to all staff, governors, parents and carers as required. This allows everyone to refer to the information and guidance as and when they need it, saving time and providing a guarantee that their knowledge is accurate and relevant to work in schools.
Wide range of applications
Understanding the Child:
- can form part of continuing professional development for non-specialist staff
- increases staff awareness of the need to be inclusive
- helps staff to become better informed and more confident about a wide range of issues that affect children's lives
- enables you to improve the quality of care and learning experiences for children and young people.
All children and young people need to feel understood, respected and included. This is as important for gifted and talented children as it is for those who may struggle academically. Making this tailor-made reference source available to teachers, support staff, governors and even parents and carers is an excellent way to help create a supportive environment where every pupil is valued and able to realise their potential.
Understanding the Child is presented in an attractive, user-friendly interface that can be accessed online from anywhere inside or outside school. All the content is well-indexed and easy to navigate, so that staff can find the information on any topic as quickly as possible. All the material can also be printed out for distribution to key staff or for use in INSET sessions.
Annual subscription: £95+VAT (primary/special schools), £195+VAT (secondary/middle schools). To order call 01223 350555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
