They must use the influence of their leadership constructively and productively in the service of all students and their families. A leader guides activities as a role model, consider personal and professional values, as well as demonstrate a personal and professional code of ethics. They treat people fairly with dignity and respect. Legal and contractual obligations must be filled and laws and procedures should be applied fairly, wisely, and considerately. A key role in educational leadership is to create an atmosphere that everyone wants to be a part of.
Working with children at Nursery age it is imperative you are open and friendly providing a secure and safe environment at this young age you are starting and laying the foundations to their learning. Having and building a good rapport with the children helps them to feel secure and happy it will encourage learning, communication and social development. Parents are an important part in their childrenâ€TMs development and within the Nursery setting, open and clear communication including them in their childâ€TMs development, always communicating how their child is doing being able to raise any concerns ensuring the parents feel comfortable will help with any barriers that there may have been initially.

I have gained patience when working with children and I believe it is a skill that is required in order for children to exceed their needs and to help a child during transitions to reach their full potential. Timing is key and with support the children will be able to emotionally adapt to attending school but also embrace new surroundings. Encouragement while children are taking part in activities in school allows children to gain self-esteem and confidence as they are being motivated which can give them a sense of achievement. Being a role model to the children is a personal skill as it gives me pride knowing the children are inspired by me and that they can learn from me by using their own initiative, being helpful to others and allowing the children to give suggestions on what they would like to do can keep them
Children go through many transitions, so it is important that the children’s key person is meeting their individual needs. They should always be positive and welcoming. When aiming to meet children’s individual needs, practitioners must regard every child as unique. Likewise, the practitioner must acknowledge that attachment is important for a child’s emotional well-being during transitions, therefore they must ensure that the child feels a sense of acceptance, love and respect. Similarly, if possible, a transition should be thoughtfully planned and organised so that the child will receive the appropriate amount of support and are able to do it at their own pace.
If all members of the school community are using the same principles and techniques when managing behaviour, it is much more likely that the children will respond in a positive way. The children will know the range of rewards and dispensations, and the order in which they will be used, no matter who is speaking to them about their behaviour. Workforce re-modelling has had an impact on a number of different professionals who are now working in schools. Support staff and midday supervisors, as well as those running extended school provision, should know the importance and impact of consistent methods. It is also important that support staff are given status within the school so that they are respected in the same way as fully qualified teaching
We need to observe the children in classrooms and carefully listen to their life experiences. By teaching the students to embrace all cultures and learn about them, it will create a unity in the classroom. Students then will feel safe and comfortable in the classroom (Gollnick & Chinn, 2012). It is no easy task to incorporate cultural knowledge throughout teaching. You must consciously think about multiculturalism as you interact with students and plan lessons and assignments (Gollnick & Chinn, 2012).
Partnership between parents and schools plays a crucial role in a childs development. A positive parent-teacher relationship helps your child feel good about school and be successful in school. It demonstrates to your child that they can trust their teacher, because you do. The partnership between parents/carers and the school needs to be a two way relationship, the parents need information about what and how their child is learning, and the teacher needs important feedback from the parent about the childâ€™s academic and social development. This positive partnership makes a child feel like the important people in his life are working together for the benefit of him/her.
As Educators respecting a child’s culture is very important to us, firstly it is a way to build a child’s sense of belonging. When culture is valued child will feel more secure and develop sense of belonging to the centre and the community. It’s very essential to gain a child’s trust and show understanding and respect for his/ her cultural background because that is where they come from and it’s not going to change. Secondly including their culture will make a child feel belonged and he/ she can then make more social interactions with other child and respecting their colour, language and cultural background because everyone is not the same. If we educators show that children have a sense of belonging, children will feel more confident and build more safe relationship with everyone.
This is also one of the best contributing factors for their rapport. These actions leads the children to trusts her and to talk to her. The children view her as someone that truly cares about their wellbeing. Something that truly stood out to me was the level of planning that went into the teacher’s classroom, class management and how the wall art was being
1. Please provide an example of how you nurture the competencies of children: As educators, we strive to build our students to be responsible, and active lifelong learners. In order accomplish this, we must build meaningful relationships with our students, be excellent role models and allow our students to become critical thinkers. A good teacher is someone with whom you can trust, respect and build a relationship. Many students can’t learn if there is no solid relationship built with each student personally and with the class as a whole.
