Book Description

This wide ranging book offers a fresh survey of the pastoral needs of primary age pupils, and pupils in early adolescence for both trainee and practising teachers. This book is divided into four main sections:
* Principles considers the future needs of children, learning processes, the planning and implementation of a pastoral programme, and the co-ordination of personal and social education
* Aspects of Pastoral Care develops six specific pastoral approaches: welfare and liaison, health and medical services, life crises and counselling, managing behaviour, bullying, and starting secondary school
* Viewpoints has three personal statements: television viewing, core values for teachers and parents, and the professionalism of teachers
* In An Agenda for Discussion the editors comment on the various chapters of the book and add extra material on pastoral care and personal and social education
