KS4 Health & Social Care


Year 10

Exam Board:  OCR

The GCSE includes a controlled assessment which is worth 60%. Rules state this must be done in class, with a time limit of 25 hours. Therefore students may not take home sections to complete outside of the allotted class time. However research for each section can be done at home and bought to the set lessons. Catch up time can only be awarded to those who have missed the set lessons for a valid reason, or those who are entitled to extra time in examinations following SEN testing. This means full concentration and preparation is essential when working on the assessment.

 Students may question parents/ carers, grandparents or other family members and friends on how they have provided informal care and support for young children in the past (for example who looked after the pupil when they were not at nursery).

Parents/Carers may give details of other services who helped meet the pupils needs growing up, e.g. GP, dentist, audiologist, social care etc.

 Provide details of how the students’ needs were met growing up, or if a younger sibling is at that stage provide information of how their needs are being met. Give examples of positive and negative situations.

Ensure students are attending school and bringing correct equipment for write up (pen, pencil, ruler, exercise book)

 Websites for different services may prove useful, with examples
of different policies. This includes our own school website which is full of good examples of policies aimed at those working with children, and to help support and protect children. Students may again question parents and reflect on their own younger life, discussing how they communicated with others, or think about their younger friends/siblings.
Research different college/ sixth forms/university courses which are suitable for those working with young children.  The school library has lots
of great research which could be photocopied and brought into the lessons
 Parents may be able to help students remember how they communicated when younger and help provide relevant examples. If asked to answer questions please give up time to do so.
Task 5:

Other ways in which parents/carers can help:

 

  •   Suggest students watch useful television programmes, for example 24 Hours in A & E, soap operas such
    as Holby City and Casualty, even EastEnders and Coronation Street can be applied to health and social
    care  as many scenarios can be observed, and the effect they may have on an individual. For example,
    birth, death, divorce, illness, marriage, ethnicity and religion are all topics which may come up in our exam.
    Human behaviour is the basis of course so being able to see others’ perspectives can be really useful.

Other ways in which parents/carers can help:

 

●  Ensure time is set aside to revise each week. Topics will be changing quickly and it is best to start revising
as you go along now. Check blue exercise books are being taken home used, and hand-outs/ revision
guides are being read regularly.●  Posters and charts stuck up in bedrooms might also help with revision so please encourage this.
