If they feel emotionally secure they are more likely to participate in the play and learning activities. Children need to have a strong relationship with the staff to feel comfortable and secure this will help them to enjoy themselves and less likely to show unwanted behaviour. It is important for adults to ensure that they have effective communication with their students; this will help keep the children comfortable and will also gain their trust. Without trust and honesty the children may feel like you are unapproachable and may keep their problems and worries to themselves and this may affect their learning. It is important that children are made aware of what is expected of them within school with regards to their behaviour and interacting with others.
Building trust with parents or carers will result in them knowing that the nursery is a very good place for their child as it offers a great amount of help and support, which is especially important for new parents or carers. Other professionals It is also important to partner with other professionals as they will offer the support and services, where needed, to improve the overall development of the child. For example, a speech and language therapist may assist a child with communication difficulties. Another example would be a play therapist to diagnose, prevent or resolve a child with psychosocial challenges. Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership.
1) Be able to develop positive relationships with children and young people. 1.1) Explain why positive relationships with children and young people are important and how these are built and maintained? Having a positive relationship with children and young people are important because: • Children feel comfortable with us so they can separate easier from their parents. • Children are more likely to participate in play and activities if they secure emotionally. • Children are less likely to show unwanted behaviour.
Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need. Practitioners need to build positive relationship with not only their key children and other children in their setting but also with the children’s parents this gives them a better chance of giving children more support at home. See appendix 1. At the setting parents can get involved and this will benefit planning for the child as parents know their children better than anyone and they will know their likes and dislikes and will be able to help them with their development. See appendix 2 .
Effective communication is also important so that information given is clear, concise, accurate, and informative. This decreases the possibility of errors being made. It is important to work as a team with other members of the setting, so that the child is getting the support the need and so that ever one is working to achieve the same results and goals. Within my own we use a range of methods to communicate with parents such as, monthly newsletters, class teachers hand-outs/diary informing parents what their child is doing each term, letters and posters. Having effective communication with the parents is important so that they know how their child is doing and what is happening at the nursery.
Assessment criteria 1.2 • Explain why it is important for all staff to be consistent and fair when applying boundaries and rules for children and young people and outline the implications that inconsistent application of rules may have. • Give examples of applying these rules and boundaries in accordance with the policies and procedures. It is important for staff to be consistent and fair when applying boundaries and rules for children and young people because it will enable then to understand what acceptable and unacceptable behaviour is. Children and young people need to understand the consequences of not acting within those boundaries. It is important that the boundaries are appropriate for the age and stage of their development.
Task 1 When planning activities and environments you need to think about a range of factors so that the children can explore and develop whilst remaining safe. It is important to remember that every child is an individual; different ages, abilities, genders, religions etc. Therefore, when planning , these must be taken into account so that everyone can participate and feel equal. Part of being safe is being free from hurt, including emotionally as well as physically. This means that safe activities should promote equality and diversity.
CYP Core 37 2.4 Explain how to support children and young people according to their age, needs and abilities to make personal choices and experiences that have a positive impact on their lives One of the most important factors of being a practitioner is being able to judge a child’s rate of development. This enables a practitioner to be able to select a suitable dialect and activities for example I would not expect a year 1 class to be able to understand or carry out the work of a year 6 class and vice versa. It is always essential to remember that the child is an individual and so will have their own voice, opinions and points of view, therefore is very important to respect, listen to and value these. Again we should be working on the 5 positive outcomes of
Resubmission : Unit 5: The principles underpinning the role of the practitioner working with children E1 The practitioner’s main responsibilities in working in a professional relationship with children in schools is making sure children are listened to and valuing their opinions. Children should feel secure and valued because it will make them feel that they have a sense of belonging and including them no matter what their race, religion, abilities, disabilities or culture is. Listening to children is an important part in a relationship with children. If a child has any worries or concerns they should be able to talk to the practitioner because if the practitioner isn’t approachable the child may be suffering and feel they have no one to
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.
