Playing it too safe?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does school's health and safety culture wrap pupils in cotton-wool? Is an unwillingness to expose children to risk turning out adults lacking the entrepreneurial skills to manage risk and danger and to cope with failure? The Big Debate, chaired by Krishnan Guru-Murthy, examines the arguments about safety both inside and outside school. There are growing calls from business leaders and child welfare experts that children should be exposed to more risk to help them cope with the realities of the modern world. But an increase in the levels of risk that children face is statistically certain to lead to more failures, accidents and even deaths, should schools relax their rigorous approaches to health and safety? Have schools got the balance right?Filmed in front of a live studio audience of teachers, experts, parents and pupils, the programme features an expert panel including former Dragon's Den star and founder of Yo Sushi, Simon Woodroffe, and Mick Brookes, NAHT General Secretary

A headteacher who faced the challenge of taking in pupils from a nearby closed school talks about how new pupils were welcomed in and anti-bullying methods were improved to create a smooth transition for all. In 2006, headteacher Deborah Tague decided to review the overall ethos of the school as staff prepared to integrate existing pupils with the new influx of students.

A number of methods have since been adopted to prevent bullying, including restorative practices in the nurture room; a buddy bus stop outside; a post box where pupils post their concerns; and circle time, where pupils can share their thoughts and ideas. Behavioural Support Worker Lisa Williamson plays confidante to the pupils who wish to resolve any issues that are troubling them and talks about how the children have learned to get along
