Example text

Care is an approach that goes beyond a tender emotion or sympathy. It reflects a desire to seek the emotional and academic good of pupils and other adults in school and to behave in such a way that they are able to learn and develop without undue hindrance. This process requires that teachers explain their decisions (but do not try to justify them) and persevere to promote equality of opportunity and affirm children’s genuine efforts. In turn, pupils can be helped to develop a sense of compassion through taking care of a younger child in the school, helping in charity fund-raising events or befriending elderly members of the community.

Teachers are not able to assume that children are capable of instant collaboration simply because they are put in groups to work together. Collaboration, like any other skill, has to be explained, developed and practised so that it can become refined into a powerful learning tool. While freedom of expression is important, children have to learn to show respect for other people’s opinions while, as far as possible, expressing their own ideas openly. One of the most difficult attitudes for children to develop is having an open mind, such that they do not summarily dismiss views, pour scorn on unusual suggestions or marginalise other children in the group.

Common sense suggests that smaller classes must inevitably lead to higher standards and greater pupil achievement because teachers have more time to spend with each individual child. However, other factors impact upon attainment, including pupils’ academic ability, level of motivation for the subject and availability of adult assistance and resources. The clearest evidence of positive effects of smaller class size is found among infant children; reducing class size can be especially helpful for disadvantaged and minority ethnic pupils.
