Department for Education
Article 28 (right to education) Every child has the right to an education. Primary education must be free and different forms of secondary education must be available to every child. Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity and their rights. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
Article 29 (goals of education) Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
Young Leaders and Little Leaders within the Department for Education here at Gorsefield have an incredibly important role within school. They are responsible for contributing to the vision, ideas and shaping of the education at Gorsefield Primary School. The Department for Education consists of representatives from Early Years and Key Stage One (Little Leaders) and representatives from KS2 (Young Leaders). The Department for Education also has a department lead who support, guide, approve and help implement decisions made within the department. The Department for Education teacher lead is Mrs Onyekaba .
The Department for Education meet at least once per team (usually more!) and a member of the department takes minutes and records what the team are working on, the actions towards this and any next steps.
The Department for Education are current working on:
- Training all members of the department on how to become a qualified coach so children are able to support others through the technique of coaching rather than ‘telling’.
