Assignment 013- Understand Partnership Working in Services for Children and Young People Task A Why is it important for children and young people that you work in partnership with the following people/groups?

1.1. Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. Communication is important in developing relationships with children and young people because having positive relationships with the people we interact with makes our daily lives easier and more productive. In an educational environment maintaining positive relationships opens up opportunities for good communication, it gives us confidence in our ability and an understanding of our environment. Accepting shared responsibility by knowing what our role is and what’s expected of us is very important, following recognised procedure and understanding shared values all promote good relationships.
If we communicate something positive, it brings back something positive to us that is why developing a positive relationship is so important, this way we are more likely to inspire confidence and trust. Adults should act as positive role models to the children that are in their care, it is vital to develop good, appropriate relationships with children, staff, parents and any other adults involved in the
Positive relationships enable information to be communicated far more effectively. Working in a school this will benefit pupils when you are dealing with parents or carers as they will be more willing to get involved in the child or young person’s education and care. Building and maintaining positive relationships and effective communication with pupils will help them know and understand what is expected of them and acceptable boundaries. In order to develop positive relationships with children, young people and adults effective communication is vital. To effectively communicate we must: • think consciously (everyone is an individual) • explain (be clear, use appropriate language) • listen actively ( occasional nods and eye contact) • be true to our word (say what you mean, mean what you say) • recall (repeat snippets of what has been said to you) • have empathy (non-bias understanding of others situations) • clarify and question (ask the other party if they understand what you have said ) • body language (your own and reading the other persons) Not putting the above skills into practice will create barriers to effective communication and positive
On a daily basis we communicate to share ideas and information, experiences and emotions, share opinions and needs and wants. In doing so this allows us to build and maintain friendships, relationships and trust. Another reason for communicating is to build our own self-esteem- we praise children in the setting to raise their self-esteem and provide feedback to other colleagues for the work they have done. This helps to build their self- esteem too. In a childcare setting the relationships we foster with children/ young people are important as it is in this way they gain secondary socialisation skills.
Standard 1:Understand the principles and values essential for fostering children and young people 1.Principles and Values 1a) What principles and values do you think are important in caring for children? Principles • The welfare of the child is paramount. • Foster carers contribute to children’s care, learning, development and safeguarding. This is reflected in every aspect of practice and service provision. • Foster carers support parents and families who are partners in the care, learning, development and safeguarding of their children, recognising they are the child or young person’s first, and in most situations, their most enduring carers and educators.
Disorganized relationships. Disorganized children don’t know what to expect from their parents. Children with relationships in the other categories have organized attachments. This means that they have all learned ways to get what they need, even if it is not the best way. This happens because a child learns to predict how his parent will react, whether it is positive or negative.
D. Identify the policy used in the setting to promote positive behaviour. The policy used in the setting to promote positive behaviour is praising and encouraging each individual child’s achievements. Children and young people come into the setting and as they grow up they develop emotionally, socially and intellectually. Some go through difficult stages and some experience more positive transition they use praise and encouragement as it is the best way to help towards children’s progression and behaviour. E. Describe at least three procedures your setting uses to promote positive behaviour.
