FutureLearn course

I am just starting “Astronomy and Space Physics: Teaching Secondary Science”. This is to help me gain more familiarity on what is taught in secondary school science. Hopefully I can find employment to support the curriculum in some capacity.

It is important to be 'pro-active' in this, gain new skills and show you are willing to learn, develop and research content.

I feel that I have a lot to offer, so hopefully I will be able to make a positive contribution one day.

Everyone's Invited 4

So further to my Previous post. There is now a list of schools where, abuse has taken place. At least 3 in Torbay, 2 Secondary and 1 Primary school.

The list can be found on the Website

The abuse culture needs to end now, without people making up excuses.


I still feel that we need further investigations in to other forms of abuse in schools.

This should include (not a full list):-

  • homophobic
  • racist
  • physical assaults (e.g ABH, GBH etc) in schools.

This is seems to be prevalent. There is a culture of failing to deal with it in any effective manner. It also seems schools want to protect the abusers in some way.

If you are a victim of abuse. I would strongly recommend you undertake a course in equality and diversity, that way you know the law, can quote the law to the school. The school, can't then make some excuse for letting it carry on.

Ideally investigations should happen ASAP, led by someone, competent, who can compel people to cooperate, be judge led, so that all evidence is provided under oath. Protection needed for victims, who should not keep needing to retell their versions of events.

USEFUL LINKS

For physical abuse, please consult other legislation.


I am making these posts because:-

  • I am committed to safeguarding
  • I want to empower others, to challenge their school and force them take action
  • I know victims of bullying in schools who have been ignored by their school, despite being informed MULTIPLE TIMES.
  • I am a victim of abuse at the hands of pupils in a school, again this abuse was ignored

  • Too many people are still being ignored.

  • The abuse needs to stop

  • Victims should not have to withdraw from a school, to escape bullies.

Key points:-

  • Schools have a legal duty to safeguard children and young people
  • Schools have a duty under Health and Safety legislation
  • Schools have a duty under Equality legislation
  • According to the positive handling course, the duty of care under H & S applies to :-

    • Staff
    • Pupils
    • Visitors (inc contractors etc )
    • Parents
    • Anyone on the school site.

So why is it happening? In 2021

LETS END THE ABUSE CULTURE

NOTE

If this abuse didn't happen in schools, then posts such as this would not be needed.

This is related to my previous post to do with abuse in schools. It seems the issue is much bigger and there is no easy solution.. Previous post can be found here

So in essence teachers are not sure how to handle peer on peer abuse, or in this case peer on peer sexual abuse.

I am not too sure what is hard about teaching children the word NO from an early age and that NO means NO. and being told NO does not breach their human rights or other right,

This is a newly created studio for these completed projects.

To keep people safe this studio is also invite only you will therefore need to contact the library, provide your scratch user name and I can invite you in.

Please contact [Paignton Library and information centre](https://www.torbaylibraries.org.uk/web/arena/paigntonlibrary

Related profiles :-

Both Repl.it and FreeCodeCamp have excellent features, to share code, ask for help and help others.

I have been looking in to the Repl.it teams feature at the moment, early days as I think I will wait till the forum feature is up as this seems integral to the teams feature.

Stay safe on the forums.

For advice on e-safety please see ThinkUKnow
