Safety on the Internet

It can be great to encourage our children to use the computer in order to build on their IT skills as we live in a technology savvy world.  However, it is important to ensure the safety of our children when they browse the internet, especially as they cannot always be supervised by their parent or teacher.

Promoting internet awareness in our child is important as it makes them think before they access certain websites. Internet awareness works in very much the same way as Stranger Danger does in the physical world.  Therefore we need to make sure that our children know what is okay on the internet and what they should avoid.

Controls

There are special parental controls and add-ons provided by Google and other companies that will help ensure safe browsing for your children. You can install these and they pretty much work as a filter to remove anything not child appropriate or they prevent your child from accessing these inappropriate sites. However some websites only ask for a date of birth as proof of age, so the system is not unbreakable.

Whether you specialise in teaching IT or in general studies, Red Box Teachers will provides you with new job opportunities that are suited to you.

Compulsory Testing at Age 4?

 

The decision has recently been made to introduce compulsory testing for children aged four and five, to get a basic outline of their cognitive abilities when they start school. The tests will take place within the first few weeks of reception class in order to give early years teachers a better understanding of each child’s abilities, so that they can give them the help they need to start learning.

These tests are due to be introduced from 2016, and have received criticism from parents, unions and academics who are concerned that ‘pigeon-holing’ students into set skill ranges at such a young age can only damage their potential to learn. In response to this, the Department of Education has considered abolishing the current key stage one tests that take place when most children are aged seven.

It will be compulsory for all children to complete these tests in reception from 2016, although the decision has been made not to tell Parents of their child’s ranking.

Child assessment has long been subject to tweaks and changes, in order for us to better understand the learning level of children. Do you think four is too early to start testing children? Or do you feel that it is the perfect opportunity to give them the help that they may need? At RedBox Teachers, we always prioritise learning over anything else, so with a whole host of qualified Supply Teachers and Teaching Assistants, you can be sure to find an excellent match here at Redbox, whether you are a supply teacher or teaching assistant looking for new work, or currently work at a school that is looking for new supply teachers.
