Pastoral Care 11-16: A Critical Introduction
A&C Black, Mar 14, 2013 - Education - 240 pages
How can teachers deal with the growing pastoral needs of pupils aged 11-16 in schools?
This critical guide explores the pastoral role which teachers play in schools, and argues that today's schools continue to offer children an invaluable source of support. This guide explores a number of serious pastoral issues, drawing on contemporary research to outline the impact which these issues can have on children aged 11-16 and offering practical strategies for providing support on a whole-school and individual classroom level. Consideration is also given to how schools can use the curriculum proactively to help pupils be more prepared to deal with serious pastoral issues.
Topics dealt with include:
- supporting children who are experiencing separation or divorce
- helping to prevent and deal with bullying, including cyber-bullying
- identifying and responding to possible child abuse
- understanding the impact of domestic violence
- supporting children through bereavement
- responding to self-harm and suicide
This is the essential guide for those training to teach in the secondary sector and for practicing teachers who have recently taken on pastoral responsibilities.
