Explain the importance of demonstrating anti-discriminatory/anti-bias practice when working with children and young people: The importance of demonstrating anti-discriminatory/anti-bias in a work setting is to help prevent discrimination towards any individual children, members of staff or parents and to help promote equal opportunities. By helping to prevent discrimination and promote equal opportunities we are making sure that all members of staff, children, parents and other professionals who enter the work setting are treated equally and fairly and in an unbiased way. All work settings should have policies, procedures and strategies which demonstrate how a positive and inclusive attitude should be towards all individuals that attend the setting regardless to their age, gender, race, culture or disability. By showing this type of positive attitude each individual within the wor setting
there will be many different characters and the trainer must be aware of them so the learning can be adapted. The trainer must be aware of the dynamics in the group and be aware of behaviours so that he/she can make sure all participants are always involved and no one is missed out if there are
Listening to children The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child shows a child’s right to his or her own views in all matters and the right to the freedom of expression. This includes the right to receive and be part of information about themselves. All people around children need to make sure that rights are upheld and matters affecting children are looked after. Children can experience worries at home, at school or with their peers and children need to talk about their issues. Parents, professionals and practitioners need to pay attention not only to what children say, but also what they are saying.
The appropriate persons in the Health Service Executive are immediately notified of any serious complaints. Complaints made by young people are recorded and a clear conclusion is made. In relation to the protection of the child or young person this standard is beneficial as it is a procedure that is made aware to them and if they need assistance they know that they can seek it. Having knowledge that this procedure is in place and that they have the right to speak out may encourage children that could be suffering from abuse to come forward as they realise that the reason behind this standard is to protect themselves if they feel that something is wrong (Department for Health and Children
“In this role, you give direction, impose rules, use discipline, set limits, establish and follow through with consequences, hold your children accountable for their behavior, and teach values. You provide the guidance that helps your children to change, grow, and mature. Responsible behavior, in line with your children’s maturity levels, is taught and expected. It is in the structure role that you expect change in behavior and increased growth, maturity, and ability.” (The Center for Parenting Education). As stated above, children need good structure in their life to know they need to act right and treat others
It is vital to encourage all members of the team to change their current perspectives in order to move towards a more effective mode of operation (Kaminski, 2011). Empower the palliative care team through education. “Organizational members need to feel worthy and psychologically safe, that is, to have no fear of retribution or punishment for embracing the change” (Burke, 2011). In-service training will be provided to all members of the palliative care team. First, reinforcement of thorough assessment skills is mandatory.
In general, the adults surrounding the vulnerable child as well as with the person who abused, need to take the lead by opening conversations about healthy relationships, healthy sexual behaviors, and what are sexually abusive behaviors. These conversations can help ensure that everyone connected to the family, either directly or indirectly, understands what happened and what needs to be done to maintain safety in the community. Once the basic information is shared, the family should discuss future family goals and be sure to incorporate these goals into the plan. The goal setting process helps the family imagine what is possible and also helps to define success for that family. If safety is truly a goal, then a family member speaking up about their concerns and the family deciding to NOT continue family reunification would be considered success because the goal of safety is reinforced.
It is important for the children to feel comfortable and safe. If the activity that they are doing reminds them of something that has happened to them then immediate care and support must be provided to the child. If the children are playing nicely with one another and then a child begins to hit or kick another child then that child that is hurting the other must be removed from the situation as they are causing a barrier towards play based learning. With play based learning it is important that it not cause any harm towards the children and must be health and safety checked beforehand. Therefore, we have a risk assessment to check before the childcare sector opens for the children and parents to enter as well as tidying up constantly.
When it comes to children and young people it is important that we secure and protect them when in the care of setting, child minders, carers, even when they are at home. The term safeguarding is meant by protecting them from any damage with an appropriate measure. Every child can be put at risk, could be hurt, could be put in awful situations that no one should ever be put in whether their race, gender, religion, Culture, environment, etc. This is why the government has put in legislation into place of the safeguarding for children and young people up to the age of 18. Safeguarding underpins and outlines the areas it supports for the children to have a healthy and safe childhood which are to protect and prevent maltreatment, ensuring the children are growing up with consistent safe and effective care, preventing any impairment of their health and/ or development, also to take necessary actions to enable the best and positive outcome for the children / young people ‘promoting children’s welfare and putting measures in place to improve
safeguarding is that health practitioners and organisations work together and remain in contact but only discuss certain people that they are working with and only discuss certain aspects. This is important because miscommunication can lead to large discrepancies and can cause problems for the person if all aspects of their case are not informed and are up to date. One main principle when safeguarding children is to make sure that they are growing up in circumstances that allow them to feel safe and are given effective care. This is so children feel safe and comfortable in their home life so that they can flourish and grow up to fill their potential. (Care Quality Commission, 2018) We need safeguarding as a way to keep health practitioners within the legislation and so that they are giving all service users to best quality of care that they possibly can and safeguarding helps them to do this.
Responding to the evidence of safeguarding concerns it is extremely important for every one wo work with children or young people to fully understand their own responsibilities in relation to safeguarding issue one of the most important thing to remember is that if you ever have a concern about the welfare of child or young person you should always make those concerns know to an appropriate person.

If a child or young person alleges harm or abuse, it is important to be aware of the school procedures to be followed for reporting concerns about that particular child. Teacher should also know how to respond if a child discloses anything serious to them. • Listen carefully- If a child talks to me about a concern, or if the child tells me about their abuse I will listen carefully and compassionately to what they tell me. • Stay Calm-It is important to stay calm and not show any extreme reaction to what the child is saying. The child is taking a risk by telling me this so I should ensure that the child 's experience of telling is a positive one.
Several organisations have been set up to assist or care for children who are primarily vulnerable; the trustees are responsible for ensuring that those benefitting from, or working with, are not abused in any way through contacts with it; they have a legal duty to act cautiously and this means that they must take all realistic steps within their power to ensure that this does not happen. It is particularly important where recipients are vulnerable children in the community; trustees are expected to find out what the relevant law is, how it applies to their organisation, and to comply with it where applicable, they should also adopt best practice as far as possible. In addition the main purpose of this module is to be accountable for the
There are many different principles and values that should be supported and understood by the setting when dealing with a child with such specific needs. When dealing with such a transition it is vital the setting co-inside with the main principles and values involving such things as that the practice is a child centred one and that the child’s wellbeing is always paramount. The setting must always support and uphold the rights of the child and as the child is disabled they must also ensure the Disability Discrimination Act is also followed within the setting with regards to the child who is wheelchair bound, the child will also have to be involved in the setting by their key worker and the other professionals present in order for the child to feel part of the class. They can achieve this by ensuring the child takes part in such sessions as physical education with their
Policies and procedures give clear messages to staff about their responsibilities and roles. They set boundaries which they are expected to work within.
