AHOY, ME HEARTIES!Posted on: 15/06/2018
The Year 9 BTEC Health and Social Care group has been hard at work completing their first coursework unit - Health and Social care services and values. In order to satisfy the criteria of the course, the students had to organise and run a children’s party which would allow them to demonstrate the core care values which underpin Health and Social Care.
The Care values are: -
• Promoting effective communication and relationships
• Promoting anti-discriminatory practice (including policies and codes of practice)
• Maintaining confidentiality of information
• Promoting and supporting individuals’ rights to dignity, independence, empowerment, choice and safety.
• Acknowledging individuals’ personal beliefs and identity and respecting diversity
• Protecting individuals from abuse
• Providing individualised care
Sixty pupils from St. Teresa’s primary school were invited to attend the ‘pirate’ themed party, and it is safe to say they all had a great time. Our Year 9s were attentive and very well organised and ensured all of the younger children were happy and engaged. There were craft activities, a competition for the best pirate plate and ‘pass the parcel’ which were all carefully supervised by our students.
Last, but not least, every child went home with a pirate themed party bag, filled with goodies. The party was a resounding success. Our students clearly demonstrated all of the care values but also the schools care values of Cooperation, Ambition, Respect and Excellence throughout the planning and running of the party. Well done, Year 9s!
