Every Child Matters ECM - has influenced how we work with children in the education setting, this book will provide the guidance needed on how to ensure the ECM outcomes are being achieved for families and for children. The book also shows how the young child learns in the early years setting and will help the reader develop their own knowledge and understanding of the topic.
A good helpful addition.
My students used this book a lot for their assignments and will be on the essentials list this year they used it when discussing the ECM policy and it is easy reading at level four.
My childcare students dipped in and out of this book. the students raised interesting points and ideas from it.
An interesting book that allows for reflection on key areas of ECM. These themes still need to have a clear focus for students today.
All lecturers agreed that this book would deepen students' understanding of key issues relation to Education and Initial teacher training. It has been recommened in the module handbook for 2011
Although level 2 learners will find this book useful I feel it is more suited to the needs of my level 3 cohort. It will be extremely useful to them when researching and being asked to give critical feedback.
This book has been highly recommended for those completing the SCPHN/hv and SCPHN/sn course to give them a grounding in policy context relating to children.
I recommend this book for all those involved in the teaching of or duty to adhere to Every Child Matters. Each ECM element is broken down and explained with practical tasks and ideas which the reader can relate to their practice.
This will be essential reading for one module on an FdA programme entitled Every Child matters. It provides detailed knowledge split appropriately. it is easy to manage academically. it will be useful on several other modules on other courses as well.
This is a well written and thoughtful text which helps to stimulate criticality within the readers/ students at the beginning of the course. It is directly linked to required SENCO learning outcomes around the principles of ECM, and supports to foster a critical engagement with the issues.
This book will give students a good overview of the many issues children have to negotiate in life. It asks the reader pertinent questions to initiate some critical thinking of practice.
