The role of the practitioner is a variety of things that include being key worker this means that practitioners have a small group of children each that are there key children. it is then their job to observe and assess them and keep them on track with their development looking for any extra support that they need and if so then they need to put practice in place to help the children achieve the development milestones. Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need.
It is therefore important that you examine your own attitudes and values to consider how these may impact on the way you work with children and young people. Children listen intently to others around them, both adults and other children and soak up all information given to them. The school must make sure that the children are surrounded with positive messages about their peers and their own importance in society. All children are individuals and have individual rights; however they are not the same. It is the policy, currently, to include all children in mainstream education so long as the curriculum can be adapted to suit an individual pupils needs.
1.1 Explain the value of a child centred model of assessment and planning Child centred assessment and planning is a good way to make sure that the setting is giving the children attending the best possible chance to develop at their own rate. This is done by observation as it enables you to get to know the individuality of the child, ensuring that they are well placed and able to plan and all of their individual needs are met. I feel that in my role, observations take place each day through activities and interaction with the child. Assessing children is an on-going process, routines and activities can also build on information needs and interests. Assessments can also be made by other professionals, including doctors, social workers, occupational
Standard 1: Understand the principles and values essential for working with children and young people. 1.1.A Think of a particular situation when you were able to treat children, young people, their families and their carers with respect. Respect implies having due regard for the feelings, wishes or rights of other people. In the context of a child, young people or their families respect would relate to showing due regard to their feelings, their wishes and also their rights in the context of how one relates, responds and treats them. The basic way of treating someone with respect is to ensure that their interest and welfare is at the forefront of all dealings and interactions with them.
With positive behaviour around, children find it much easier what is expected of them. Starting from a young age having boundaries with children is crucial so as they grow they will know what behaviour is acceptable and what behaviour isn't. They need consistency so that way staff have to work close with partent/carers to let them know what boundaries we have in our settings and try and get the partents to use our techniques at home so the children dont get confussed. Children need a lot of consistency in their lifes to help them know what is good behaviour. This also helps children take responsibility for their actions and also they are part of the process.
• Self-esteem and resilience are recognised as essential to every child or young person’s development. • Confidentiality and agreements about confidential information are respected as appropriate unless a child or young person’s protection and well-being are at stake. • Professional knowledge, skills and values are shared appropriately in order to enrich the experience of children and young people more widely.
CYPOP 9 1.1 Explain the importance of providing accurate and up to date information and advice to children and young people. Young people should have accurate and up-to-date information about the range of opportunities available to them along with appropriate career information, advice and guidance (IAG) and any information to help support the decision-making process. All young people are entitled to the support that they need to move into a positive and sustained destination. All young people will have frequent opportunities to discuss their learning with an adult who can act as a mentor, helping them to set appropriate goals for the next stage in learning and provide suitable IAG when required. Involving young people in planning and reflecting on their own learning through assessment, evaluation and personal learning planning is essential and this is the responsibility of all practitioners regardless of the learning setting.
When talking or listening to children, always maintain eye contact, concentrate on what the child is saying and physically lower yourself to the child’s level. Children always imitate adults’ behaviour, by being a good role model: polite, honest, fair and respectful to children, there is more chance that they will act the same towards you and other adults Fairness allows a child to explain their version of events; however it is important to be consistent in situations, for example, if two children break the same rule it would be unfair to punish one and not the other, this would result in lack of respect from the children. With adults, you can communicate using more complex language. It is important for them to feel comfortable with you, since you are working closely with them. You have to be caring, respect them, be polite, give all the support they need, listen to their views, ask questions on a need to know basis and always try to handle disagreements with adults in a way that will maintain a positive relationship.

We could make more effective plans for their care and education whilst monitoring there welfare to show their skills and ideas. It is always important to have positive relationships because if we didn't there could be a danger that information could be withheld or passed on incorrectly this could result in the child not being given the support they require ending up in a delayed development . In our setting we must always create a good working relationship as it benefits all children and everyone involved, good relationships always create a positive environment where children can settle and relax easily. If we can build good relationships with every parent this is always a positive thing as parents will share information easier and take an interest in what their child is learning. It always helps to have good positive relationships with all staff as we can support each other and enjoy our
