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. Educational values such as school Mission Statements and classroom Golden Rules helps all of us to promote a positive learning environment in the school. It is very important to have a good relationship with someone as they could help with disputes or disagreements, when they arise. Treat people how you expect to be treated, treat people as an equal and positively to promote effective communication. 1.2.
In the setting in which I am situated there are policies which are relevant to promoting children and young peoples positive behaviour. Firstly the Behaviour Policy. This policy explains about behaviour and also includes the following; the schools code of conduct, rewards and sanctions and how to deal with conflict and inappropriate behaviour. The school aim to promote emotional growth, by encouraging children to take responsibility for their own actions and through developing self discipline, and respect for themselves, others and the environment. This in turn should create a caring, happy atmosphere in the school which can enable effective teaching and learning.
the result of this will be that other children will see this and will copy the staff members being respectful and, in turn, will respect their classmates, teachers and anyone outside of nursery. Providing interesting and stimulating activities within a child friendly environment is another policy this setting has. By carrying out this policy, staff are preventing children from becoming bored and irritable. Having activities for children to do will keep the children happy and enable positive behavior. Observing children closely and using 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
• 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.
Good associations and strong collaborations between adults will encourage the good behaviour in children. At Clarice Cliff our main aim is to provide quality experiences in all aspects of school life thus enabling children to be happy, successful and keen to learn, helping them to grow into young people who are fulfilled and able to make a positive contribution to society. We aim to do this in the context of a warm and welcoming family ethos, encouraging an atmosphere of natural affection, a feeling of security and an ordered way of life. Our school is a place where success is celebrated and high self-esteem positively fostered. We believe that children should develop a happy way of being together, that their self-respect leads to a respect for the rights and needs of other children and adults; a respect which promotes equality and values the diverse local community.
Simah arif MU 2.8 Contribute to the support of positive environments Section1 A.Provide a definition of the term positive environment A positive environment is a place where children can learn how to behave positively, develop good social skills, set good examples and is age and stage appropriate for each child. It should also be conclusive and accessible to meet and value the needs of every individual child in the setting. The environment should be free from diversity and discrimination of any kind and should promote creativity to help encourage children to be positive and friendly towards others and each other. Also it is a warm, happy, and suitable place where children can learn play and develop themselves. (Megitt, 2011).
TDA 3.4: Promote children and young people’s positive behaviour 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. The policies and procedures relevant in my school are written in the prospectus which is available for every adult and child in the school to read. They ensure that all the children in the school understand clearly how they are expected to behave in a kind and considerate manner and also encourage them to learn in a positive environment.
Unit 304 Outcome 2 Promote positive behaviour 2.1 Explain the benefits of actively promoting positive aspects of behaviour Social, emotional and behavioural skills underlie almost every aspect of school, home and community life, including effective learning and getting on with other people. They are fundamental to school improvement so where children have good skills in these areas, and are educated within an environment supportive to emotional health and well-being, they will be motivated and equipped to: * be effective and successful learners * make and sustain friendships * deal with and resolve conflict effectively and fairly * solve problems with others or by themselves * manage strong feelings such as frustration, anger and anxiety * be able to promote calm and optimistic states that further
Seeing things from the child’s point of view will help towards a positive relationship in a way that they will feel respected and understood. Therefore allowing the child to feel open to talk to me telling me how they feel or what they don’t like which helps when getting them to take part in different activities, controlling any behavior problems and to create a nice atmosphere to work in and for the children to learn and strive. To build and maintain positive relationships I use different body language and expressions to suit each child in order for them to understand what I am asking of them and likewise what they expect of me, I pay close attention to how they are reacting to any situation so as I can understand the different characters of each child. To help improve their confidence and communication skills it is important that I give the children enough time to try and explain themselves, what they are asking for or when taking part in a task not to rush them or jump ahead and do it for them, taking in to account their age and ability level. Getting down to the same level as the children whether it be sitting on the floor or around the classroom table is also another way I feel works well to build a positive relationship as they feel we are both equal and shows respect towards the children rather than
