SJTAA5007 The role of Teachers and support staff in identifying and implementing interventions that suit children’s individual needs using positive behaviour strategies within a primary setting. For the purpose of this project I will be looking at some of the influences that can impact on children’s social and emotional development as they move through childhood. These can often have a great impact on a child’s learning and ability to make successful transitions at key points in their lives. Difficulties often become apparent within the structured institutions such as schools where large cohorts are expected by society to conform to a certain acceptability of behaviour.
The children in a school are valued, with an environment that fully encourages and celebrates their learning and progression and how they are developing. The provision of a safe and secure learning environment for all its pupils should be provided through recognizing the importance of welcoming diversity and equal opportunities. The atmosphere within a school should be positive, with this being reflected in the attitudes of the staff and pupils, all caring for and taking pride in their surroundings and in how the learning journey of each pupil takes
Within the school environment the ethos of the school should be noticed upon entering and the daily performance of the staff and pupils who attend and work for the school. All the staff that work in the environment have an important responsibly when it comes to children as children and young people are influenced by the behaviour they see from their role models, which can be teachers, family members and friends and teaching assistants such as myself. They are influenced by not just my behaviour but every adult within the setting, so everyone needs to make sure that they are not displaying negative behaviour or displaying a negative way of dealing with certain people or incidents involving others, otherwise this could affect other younger children
For example, bullying, intimidation, threats of violence and anti-social behaviours between peers and towards members of the public have been common features. The positive action taken by staff challenges poor, disrespectful behaviour and educates the young people about acceptable and unacceptable behaviours thus reinforcing clear routines and boundaries. This also helps the young people to settle down into home life. It also enables them to take responsibility for their actions and focus on their individual goals. The young people are responsive to staff praise, which boosts their self-esteem and is showing positive signs of improved
With children the environment they are brought up in effects their behaviour. Show them that there are boundaries & limits within a school but always make this age appropriate so they will understand. It is important they learn to consider others feelings but just as important to now forget their own feelings and emotions & how to deal with them. Effective communication rather than say getting into and argument which will only upset people and make the situation worse. By using effective & positive communication arguments can be avoided and any issues resolved.
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them.
Children will become more independent with their learning. There are children who misbehave for many different personal reasons. Some behave badly to get attention, they disrupt other class-mates, show off and misbehave in class. They need to know their boundaries and the rules and policies in place in school, therefore understanding the school’s sanctions and
I model appropriate behaviors, establish routines and simple rules in the classroom, speak positively with the children, understand that children may not be ready to share, and they need to explore and experiment with control and saying ‘no’. I realize that all children may show challenging behaviors – they are learning to control their bodies, and to control their emotions. I feel the most important aspect of positive guidance for challenging behavior is to build strong relationships with the children. These relationships allow me to know exactly what each child needs in terms of developing their social, emotional, and problem-solving skills, their self-regulation, and their
Therefore, it is imperative that the school finds a new, research-based positive discipline program designed to teach students expected social behavior. In order to do so, all teachers must participate in professional development to ensure that the discipline policy is consistent throughout the grade levels. With a positive discipline policy, students similar to Joey would learn and practice expected behavior; thus, reducing the occurrences of discipline problems. In addition, all students will come to feel safe, valued, and respected within the school
Part A: Guidance philosophy: 1. Describe your own attitudes and beliefs about the guidance of young children. I feel guiding young children is accomplished with great values, attitudes and actions that make the classroom a positive and supportive learning environment. To achieve this, the following needs to be used in the classroom: • Encourage participation • Establish structures for learning (routines/schedules) • Treat all learners with respect as individuals • Avoid negative communication 3. Explain how your views on guidance have changed since you started studying early childhood education.
EYE37WB-2.1 Describe areas of learning and development within the current framework which relate to school readiness. Prime areas of learning Specific areas of learning Persona, social and emotional development • The development of the children‘s confidence. • How children manage their feelings.
Manage behaviour effectively to ensure a good and safe learning environment” – (Department for Education, 2012). When a behaviour policy works alongside an effective learning environment, the 7th standard of the QTS Teaching Standards will have been achieved. When achieving this the teacher is closer to accomplishing the rest of the Teaching Standards. In order for children to have an education which enables them to fulfil their potential as well as learning in a positive environment a well written behaviour policy must be set in place. Ensuring supporting a child’s behaviour within the classroom and around school will enable teachers to teach without any
In the contemporary times, great importance is given to the significance of early years of a child’s life. It is widely acknowledged now-a-days that the early childhood years are a predominantly receptive phase in the developmental process. This stage is responsible to lay a foundation in early days and later years for cognitive functioning, learning process, physical wellbeing, and self-regulatory capacities in both personal and social lives. In simple words, “the period from birth to age 5 is one of opportunity and vulnerability for healthy physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development” (Karoly, Kilburn & Cannon, 2005). However, it is also a fact that many children go through several stressors during their developmental years due to which their healthy development may be impaired.
Introduction- My case study is about Personal Social and Emotional Development (PSED) and the importance of it in the lives of children and the key role it plays as part of their growth and development. The child I am observing is a 3 years 8 months old girl called Emily. She lives at home with both of her parents and an older brother who is 10. Her father is Irish and works fulltime 5 days a week and her Mother is Spanish and works at the weekends.
