This book is an essential companion for all primary trainee teachers, whatever their training route. It focuses on the school-based experience and provides both practical strategies and opportunities for reflection, so trainees are challenged to critically evaluate their learning in order to improve attainment and ultimately succeed while in their school settings. The book reflects current educational policy and embraces key national priority areas including behaviour, inclusion and the teaching of phonics and early mathematics. Other chapters look at professional partnerships, planning and assessment, employability and, crucially, how to move from good to outstanding teaching. Case studies enliven the text and present a range of perspectives for consideration, while critical questions engage the reader and promote a deeper understanding of the text. This second edition of Primary School Placements has been fully revised throughout and in particular provides an increased focus on evidence-based practice and is referenced to the latest national curriculum.
