How to Achieve the Every Child Matters Standards
A Practical Guide


October 2007 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
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.
