Wow!! If that's what happens in Scotland. I can now see why parents are complaining. This does not happen in England. Everyone that starts at the same time will finish together.

Edited: just saw this now- In Scotland, there are no phases or stages; the Curriculum for Excellence runs progressively from age three to 18.. That might be the reason.

We have year 2/3 here. It’s even what is causing problem sef :- What’s happened is that some kids in P2 that should be moving to P3 were instead moved to P2/3 because they need additional support. By August next year they will move to P3 when it’s hoped they will have caught up to the required level.

In the meantime their mates who are in P2 now will be starting P4 by August next year. Do you see what it mean?

I know it’s crazy. I’d been hearing about the class but didn’t understand what it meant until today.

Wasn't even aware this happen. Is it also true they group kids within the same Year into different categories based on thejr capability and assign different tasks or assignment in accordance to their perceived strength?

This seems like too much work but then they maybe avoiding naija way of assigning first and last position

Yes it's called streaming and there has been calls to scrap it because of how it can be used to systematically disadvantage certain groups of children.
The problem is that the children get streamed and remain in the stream for the rest of their school life unless parents push to move them up. So it means a child that was average in the year they go streamed will not really get an opportunity to do better and move into a higher ability stream ( as they're continuously taught at the middling ability in that stream). It also restricts what subjects they can take for GCSEs as those start getting locked in at 13/14 depending on the school.

In other words stay woke on behalf of your children!

I think parents can make a lot of impacts on how their children are doing at school. If your child is put in an unfavourable stream, put a lot more effort on the child and let the performance of the child do the talking. If your child is not moved to a better stream, then question the school. Use parents evening to ask the right questions in a polite manner. Ask them how the child is performing, if there are any concerns or area for improvements. If they mention any areas, work on the areas and ask for feedback.

Once they see that you are asking the right question, they will think twice before making decisions that affect your child.

Yes this happens but I never heard of repeating in England ...typically what I heard is everyone starts and finish the same time

But u see little things of evidence of grouping based on strength, like for example some schools that give weekly spelling test. The stronger children can have 10 words per week and when they learn they be together. The weaker kids can have 3 words per week. So for example if you have twins with different strength , or your friends child in same class, you wonder why one is given 10 words and the other is 3

I agree on parents needing to have a bigger oversight. However what I found whilst teaching was that majority of parents weren't even aware of streaming and how it works especially those who have not been educated in the system. Plus a lot of the time, schools come from the perspective of we're supporting the child achieve X, Y, Z cos he/she needs support here and there.
Add the crazy hectic life here and often, I'd only see parents once a year - at parent teacher meetings which is a very, very short 10 minute snapshot of time.
I did a lot of work with ethnic minority parents in trying to get them to take a greater interest right from the beginning rather than at Year 9 when GCSE subjects are being chosen and locked into place. Majority of schools will steer children towards subjects that the can easily achieve Cs so it doesn't affect the school's stats. So imagine that you've been steered from there from Year 7, it will take a whole heck of a lot (time and money aka tutoring) to then aim to get the child to achieve a B or an A.

Thats odd, as HCA doesn't require a special licence as far as I know.

Is this at registration stage or during the application? If its during the application it may not be a compulsory question so see if you are able to progress and submit without it.

Read through the job description or person specification of the role you are applying for and ensure you meet the minimum requirements and also confirm if that advertisement stated Tier 2 applications are welcome

Isn’t it great that I’m making my first post on this platform on page 666?

Please can anyone tell me a bit about Berkshire?
I just got a job offer in one of the NHS trusts. But as someone who has lived mostly in the East of England, I wonder how Berkshire is.
Any scoop from anyone?
