2.5.1 Policies in practice - ensuring enforcement in the classroom
Welcome to chapter 5 of the 'Policies, pastoral care and practical applications' module. Much like in the previous module, you should have noticed by this point that many of the duties which result from implementing the legislation and policies discussed in the previous section feed into one another. This chapter will examine the elements of these policies that intersect and discuss how they overlap with one another in practice. It will also discuss ways of ensuring that these laws, policies and moral and ethical responsibilities are upheld in the classroom with the ultimate goal of keeping your learners safe from harm and best able to learn.
