Equality and Diversity

Equality and Diversity are very sensitive and legal issues and they are required for every professional.  As a person, everybody deserves to have respect as it is also considered a polite way of dealing with each other. Today, I took part inequality and diversity test online and read lots of issues which are vital to be acknowledged in our society. We are living in a multicultural and vibrant society. As a student and future professional, I found this test very informing and beneficial to my development.


Goals for 1PP1b

These may come from the areas for development noted above. Your goals and references to the SPR should be drawn from your reflection on your development needs. You should discuss your identified goals with your tutor prior to the start of your block placement.

You are advised to draw at least three goals from the three different sections of SPR.
Goals (Please provide SPR code e.g. 3.2.2.) Provide SPR extended goal. E.g. “Develop positive relationships and positive behaviour strategies.” Justification: Explain why you have chosen this goal and how you will achieve it.

plan appropriately for effective teaching and in order to meet the needs of all learners, including learning in literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing and skills for learning, life and work.

Planning is not an easy task to be achieved in a short time. I will discuss with my mentor about my observation of children learning abilities and understanding and how I can meet all learner needs in my planning. Planning differentiated lessons will also build my confidence during placement.



communicate appropriately with all learners, and promote competence and confidence in literacy;


Communication is my weakness in the classroom, and I found myself repeating when delivering the lesson. I will be reading more literature and communicating regularly within the class in a clear and slow pace so there is a good understanding of my teaching.


apply the school’s positive behaviour policy, including strategies for understanding and preventing bullying;


I am impressed by the behaviour strategies and have seen using them effectively by CT. I will apply these strategies during 1PP1b and there will be positive relationships in the classroom.
