Is your child 'school ready'? 

Your answer will depend on what you think that term means. And from policy makers to parents, and teachers to pupils, everyone seems to have a different view. 

“There is no clear definition about school readiness actually means, therefore, it has been left open to interpretation,” explains Dr Louise Kay, who researches EYFS practice at the University of Sheffield School of Education. On this week’s Tes Podagogy she talks at length about the problems with the school readiness concept and the way it is assessed by government.

Sarah Jane Blakemore wants you to be nicer to teenagers. Or rather, to show more understanding that they are not as adult as they may appear and that the behaviours they often adopt are sometimes out of their control. 

“One of the messages of my research, the papers we write and the books I have written, is that we should be more understanding of teenagers, of this really critical period of development,” she says.

Blakemore is professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London and the author of books including the multi-award winning Inventing Ourselves: The Secret Life of the Teenage Brain. Speaking on the Tes Podagogy podcast, she explained that we often over-estimate what a teenager is capable of doing. She also discusses mental health, mindfulness, school starting ages, and sleep.
