It’s been a bad week for us Brits.
You know I love music so I made a playlist to cheer us up a little.
Keep on, keeping on.
The British have lived with the threat of terrorism for some time now, from the IRA to the more modern threat of self-styled ISIS. It’s something as adults we’ve learnt to live with, but with the recent Manchester bombings, it’s now really landing on our kids’ radar. How do we talk to THEM about the terrorist threat?
The newspapers this week are full of reports about schools offering ridiculous prizes (incentives) for 100% school attendance.
Quite apart from the cost to cash strapped schools, I think this is a terrible idea. I believe it is totally driven by Ofsted, box ticking and image obsession, rather than any genuine care for a pupil’s education (or pastoral best interests).
