Beware – social media can bite nursery schools

A total of 43 teachers were referred to the General Teaching Council for England in 2011 for unprofessional conduct related to the use of social media sites.

14 of these teachers were suspended and 18 were placed on probation.

As a result the NUT have recently advised all schools that they should have policies in place making it clear what teachers should and should not do in the virtual space.

Which is in fact a lot more difficult than it sounds, not least because of the fact that social media is changing day by day.

To help overcome this problem we have liaised with internet and teaching experts to create a trusted, cohesive, accessible and robust school-wide policy that provides clear distinctions between public and private use of the medium and which covers the safe and appropriate use of social media by members of staff in nursery schools and departments.

The policy document is available to download online and can be purchased as a stand-alone document and then distributed in electronic or hard copy format within a matter of minutes to all members of staff.

Detailed guidelines regarding social media communication cover sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The policy document for acceptable use of social media by staff in educational establishments is priced at £49.99, but you can save 5% by quoting HH12SMP when you order from

The most important starting point when it comes to revision

One of the most important things for students as they approach revision is for them to understand exactly what they know and where they have profound gaps in their knowledge.

For this reason, “Restless Earth – Revision through Questions” starts with a self-review form for students to assess their own knowledge and understanding directly related to the specification.

Specifically designed to meet the knowledge and understanding requirements for GCSE AQA “A” Geography, this resource combines the specific content of a good textbook and also the comprehensive exam-style question practice of exam papers.

The content of the specification is referred to throughout the guide.

In addition, the volume contains a self-supported study guide – a resource that can also be used to generate classroom-based activities and also as a homework workbook.

Links to the most popular texts are also included so that students can refer to them for additional ideas or support if necessary. These books include Heinemann, Ann Bowen and John Pallister New edition 2009, ‘Understanding GCSE Geography’ and the Nelson Thornes, Canavan et al 2009 book, ‘AQA Geography A’.

This resources contains 55 copiable masters which are available as PDF downloads or as a PDF or editable Word files on a CD. The price of £39.99 + VAT is the same for all formats.
