Welcome to the Child Development Department
· Currently this subject is taught at KS4 to GCSE level by Miss J Mason in room T6
· This is an important and worthwhile subject, as most of you will become parents at some stage in your life!
· But if you think you would like to teach or look after young children, then this could be the course for you!
· The GCSE includes 60% coursework, including a child study which you will complete over a couple of terms. The study
will help you to recognise and focus on an area of the child’s development and how they are progressing.
· During the course you will look at the Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Social development of children and how
outside influences and nurturing can affect their development.
