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.
The concept of diversity is based on the idea that each individual is unique, and through this sense of uniqueness has their own merit – tying in with the notion of equality. This sense of uniqueness can be based on many different factors including age, race, gender, economic status, cultural background etc and should be taken into account when dealing with children in a setting. Equality is the notion that each child has the right to get have their needs met and an organisation must make “reasonable adjustment” to ensure this can occur. This means practitioners must take into account the child’s characteristics and ensure measures are taken for their development. Inclusion is the process of making the practice of “equality of opportunity” a viable activity in the setting.
To understand the importance of supporting the rights for all children and young people is to look in more detail at the intended outcomes of Legislation, Codes of practice, and Policies. Policies on inclusion and equality of opportunity can only be successful if they help to raise achievement and to promote self - identity and good relationships through the participation of all children and young people. All children have individual needs because they perceive the world differently and interact with others in different ways. They experience different social and environment factors which along with their genetic differences, shape their personalities, knowledge and skills. Children may be individuals but they exist as part of various social groups e.g.
One key example is early intervention; they are able to intervene with a situation almost immediately depending if the evidence gathered and shared to other professionals shows the Childs safety is being compromised. Helping to promote the safeguarding legislation and “Every Child Matters”- Being safe. This way of working also provides a universal of services to support families who may be struggling with certain things e.g financial issues. Multi agencies are a formal arrangement. Some other benefits of this co-operation between different professionals help to maintain the focus on the child, while in the educational system.
2.3 (1.1) Describe how to establish respectful,professional relationships with children and young people If we want to to build a relationship with children and young people you will need to change the way you are from child to child, from the way you speak to the way you behave. Children need to feel that they can approach you and know that they are able to come to you with a work or personal problem. Children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities need to feel safe and appreciated and the way we babehave with them should demonstrate this.. it is important to lay down ground rules from the start and to show mutual respect to get the relationship right. It is important for a child to know what the rules are and how important it is to abide by these. I work with 4-5 year olds and when they begin our class we go through the rules of the class and make sure everyone understands these rules and also we make sure that if there is any problem that they should inform us as soon as possible.
