“Kids at Hope” has become a part of the Herndon High School’s framework for all students and the entire staff. Kids at Hope is “a strategic, cultural framework designed to engage entire communities to support success for all children, no exceptions”. It is a cultural framework with strategies based on three leading principles and practices: We Believe, We Connect and We Time Travel. The “We Connect” component of Kids at Hope supports the notion that as long as children have meaningful and sustainable relationship with caring adults they will be successful. Those caring adults are called the ACES.
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
‘Having a voice, having a choice’. Children have the right to take part not only giving opinions but choosing their agenda and making their own decisions. Children and young people’s participation is to make sure that all views are heard and valued in the taking of decisions which affect them, to make sure they are supported in making positive contribution to their schools and local community. It is important to focus on all of the rules relating to child protection and safeguarding, confidentiality and data protection.

All practitioners must provide an inclusive environment that promote diversity. Inclusive practice is important in early years setting for all children whether, disabilities or learning difficulties have the right to have meet their needs met, also the EYFS frame work makes it clear to ensure that diversity of individuals is valued and respected and no child or family is discriminated again of ethnicity, culture, or religion, home language, background, learning difficulties, or disabilities also practitioners ensure that every child is unique who is learning and is capable, confidant and self-assured, children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships and also children learn and develop in safe environment. The roles
The best way to promote anti-discriminatory practice in work with children and young people is to be a good positive role model. A school needs to have high expectations of children and develop their attitudes of self-belief through appropriate challenges. The school should celebrate and value diversity, using PSHE and religious education lessons to make children aware. The school must work to include all children in the main activities in the class where ever possible and encourage the participation of all pupils in the curriculum and school life. Ensure that all pupils are encouraged to achieve to their full potential by affording them appropriate degrees of challenge and support.
The school’s ethos and shared vision state that every child should be given the opportunity to become the best person they can be. School A strives for children to become curious learners who are inspired by the school’s curriculum that caters to their individual needs. It is evident that the school encourages children to show respect for each other and establish a strong self-belief system. The school aims to: - Ensure children become happy, engaged and independent learners - Provide a high-quality learning environment - Develop effective relationships with families and wider community. - Allow children to become leaders of their own education.
Means all children that attend school are given the education that they deserve. Children will be in age appropriate classes and will be supported to learn, contribute and participate in all aspects within school. No child will be left out whatever age, gender, disability or learning needs. Equality Means giving all children the support time and guidance they need so the child can reach their full potential. Its all about understanding the childs individual needs and meeting these needs, putting in intervention strategies to remove the barriers from learning.
All immediate family is encouraged to attend the child’s IEP meeting. The IEP will help the student get the best and most appropriate education possible. The IEP will help outline the students strengths and weaknesses as well as his or hers goals for the current school year. After each school year the students educational and or speech/occupational goals will be revisited and redone to help the student grow in his or her educational realm. The students’ goals are always time based and appropriate for the child.
At the age of two my son started going to an early childcare development school and the had a mission that I was very impressed with. Their mission was that were an organization that teach in a way to encourage, motivate and provoke transformation in toddlers and youths. This organization offered training classes to After-School teachers. The training would provide the teachers with instruments and competences to teach the children to have self-expression and mentally strong participants of citizens they will develop into. They also believe in that all toddlers and youth have the moral right to be respected, cherished, treasured, educated and simply loved.
They are as follows; teamwork, planning, community involvement and parental involvement. For a school to be completely inclusive these four aspects have to be evident and work together in harmony. It is my belief that parental involvement is of vital importance within a school, as it empowers the parents themselves to undertake their own role as a primary educator. This would mean that dialogue between students, teachers and parents would be easily accessible. Teamwork is an aspect in life that everyone will experience at some stage.
