Heads blame ‘perfect storm’ of tighter budgets, higher demand and cuts to children’s services

Schools in Hull have reached “breaking point” with insufficient funding to match rising demand from the most vulnerable pupils, headteachers have said.

In a letter to the education secretary, Damian Hinds, the city’s primary school heads said they no longer had the resources to properly look after children with special educational needs (SEN).

The great learning curve: how to improve your study habits

the guardian - 13 hours 46 min ago

Experts now say a flexible approach, rather than sticking to a ‘learning style’ may be the key to successful study

It was once commonly believed if students were made aware of the learning strategies that worked for them, they’d become more efficient and effective learners. As a result, from the 1980s onwards tailored learning styles became popular and theorists such as Honey and Mumford created questionnaires to help pinpoint the four types of adult learners.

Snackable study: how to break up your master's degree

the guardian - 13 hours 46 min ago

Postgrad certificates and diplomas enable you to build your master’s in blocks – or bank what you have

Not got the time, the inclination or the funds to do a full master’s degree? Then why not consider the shorter options? Postgraduate certificates (PGCerts) and postgraduate diplomas (PGDips) don’t require you to do a dissertation, but they also contain challenging, master’s-level content. They’re recognised qualifications in their own right but can also count as part of a full master’s degree.

Marion Bennathan obituary

the guardian - Wed, 21/03/2018 - 19:42

My friend and former colleague Marion Bennathan, who has died aged 90, was an educational psychologist who changed many children’s lives for the better by her passionate advocacy of nurture groups in schools. These are psychologist-designed units led by teachers that give vulnerable children dedicated support so that they can remain in mainstream schools.

Effective Intervention in Primary Schools: Nurture Groups (1996), which Marion co-wrote with Marjorie Boxall, had a huge influence on national practice in this area. In 1997, the New Labour government recommended nurture groups in several policy papers as the outstanding example of effective early intervention. In the same year, Marion co-founded the Nurture Group Network and became its honorary director. In 2007 she was elected its honorary life president and in 2011 was appointed OBE.
