In this book Rita Cheminais shows how you can achieve the Every Child Matters (ECM) Standards in your classroom. Paying attention to the practical details, she provides guidance on:
* Applying the ECM standards to mainstream primary and secondary schools, special schools, Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), and Children's Centers * Undertaking the ECM Standards audit * Monitoring and evaluating progress * Building a portfolio of evidence * Undertaking the assessment process
The evidence gathered towards meeting the ECM Standards can be used with the OFSTED school self-evaluation form (SEF). The author has also included full evidence descriptors for each of the 12 ECM Standards in table format and aligned with the relevant ECM outcomes; an accompanying CD-ROM that features an improvement planning and self-evaluation framework and a PowerPoint presentation; and useful summary checklists.
