Assessment Criteria 1.2 Why it is important for all staff to be consistent and fair when applying boundaries and rules for children and young people and outlining the implications that inconsistent applications of rules may have. All staff in school should know and use rules consistently and behaviour should be monitored closely by the schools senior management.
Trained teachers will automatically know the types of measures to use incase a student exhibits a certain undesirable behavior. These measures will ensure that students behave in an appropriate manner and their performance is excellent. They will also make sure that the relationship and interaction between them and their students is healthy therefore building a favorable learning environment. They should be in a favorable condition to notice various problems that individual students go through, advice, keep close watch and offer valid solutions. For a school to be the best place to mould good behavior and emotions, it needs to have consistent rules and consequences in case an individual breaks them.
Boundaries are there to guide children and young people’s behaviour in the setting and it is very important for all staffs to consistently apply these boundaries fairly. Behaviour is learnt from what we see others do or say, so, it is very important for the staff to watch children closely and make sure that they apply the boundaries at all times. The importance of staffs applying the rules and boundaries are: It helps children and people to know what is right from wrong. For example, when a child knows what is right from wrong, or what is acceptable and what is not, then they will be able to do the right thing most of the time. If they know jumping is not allowed in the setting then they are going to behave accordingly.
It can provide guidance to staff when dealing with inappropriate behaviour presented by a child/young person. It states how to encourage positive behaviour, the importance of being fair and consistent, I feel it is very important that all staff are consistent and apply the rules, rewards and consequences in the same way. Children’s behaviour must be managed effectively and in a manner appropriate for their stage of development and particular needs. Each school or setting should have a named person that deals with behaviour management. I feel it is important to remain professional and not label children as ‘Naughty’ instead we should be choosing to say words such as ‘un-acceptable or
Both the young person’s family and most importantly the young person themselves can be involved in any plans to ensure that the young person can achieve their full potential, this also helps to make sure the young person feels valued. Professionals understanding the importance on which information can be shared and the importance of confidentiality in line with the Data Protection Act ensures that the young person is, and feels, protected and safe.

Promote children and young people’s positive behaviour. Section 1 – Understand policies and procedures for promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour. 1.1 Summarise the policies and procedures of the setting relevant to promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour. Our school is proud of its high standards of behaviour. The school aims to develop self-discipline and a sense of social responsibility in all children.
It does this through fully integrated working, trusted relationships between individuals who know and work with them. As a person in contact with a child/young person it is important to encourage them to show an interest in the learning that they are participating in. This can be done by following Every Child Matters aims. Among other aims to listen and communicate effectively with a child, and in turn this will build up a good working
Unit 209 Support children and young people behaviour How you could be an effect role model to children and young people In your placement in the school I believe I could be an effective role model by setting a good example to the children I work with. As studies have shown, children learn more from copying behaviour around them, rather than just being told what to do. Children are mostly influenced by teachers, parents, friends and support workers. All the adults should be aware of their own behaviour and mannerism, and the effect could have on the children. Children can pick up behaviour and attitudes from adults from around them .For this reason, I feel my appearance must always be presentable and my clothes should be appropriate to wear in a school setting.
Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults. Understand the principles of developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Effective communication is important in order to build positive relationships , we should always check how we approach and respond to other people as we are more likely to have better relationships if we communicate well with one another. Parents and other adults that come into school are more likely to give better support if communication is strong and effective in turn this benefits the children we work with. It is also important for the children that we model effective communication skills, this means checking what we are saying in moments of stress or excitement, we ask the children to behave in a certain way when communicating and sometimes forget that ourselves if we do this they will struggle to understand the boundaries of what is acceptable.
Effective Communication is important with pupils because it maintains a good relationship between the Teaching and the pupil when developing these positive relationships. Children want to be in an honest and trustworthy environment. If they don’t feel that they can trust you they will find it hard to approach you and this could affect the child’s learning. Having a positive relationship will allow the child to feel more comfortable around the T/A which will inevitably create a good learning atmosphere for everyone. Consistency and Patience will help you build this relationship.
