Pastoral, Care, Welfare Child Development particularly related to young people in Residential settings "Good Practice in Boarding Schools" has been written to fill a gap in the existing literature on good practice in residential school settings. Written by practitioners in the areas of boarding education and the development and support of children, it is complemented by contributions from those who inspect the care and welfare of young people in boarding schools. The chapters provide a wealth of good advice and acknowledged good practice, of benefit not only to staff working with young people in a residential situation, but also to those setting policy, managing their care, or likely to inspect and assess their welfare provision. The contributors have wide experience and expertise, and most have been involved in existing professional development and training initiatives developed by the Boarding Schools' Association, with the support and encouragement of the Department for Education and Employment and University of Surrey Roehampton. Liberally supplied with appendices drawing together case studies, existing legislation and the statutory framework underpinning boarding schools, it includes for the first time in a publication the new National Boarding Standards, agreed and adopted by the whole boarding sector, and now submitted to government. As a tool for training, a reader to provide general background information, and a source of ideas and advice for all those working in boarding, "Modern Boarding Practice" will provide an invaluable reference work for the care and welfare of young people in the 21st century.
