HSC 3045: Promote positive behaviour
1.1 - Explain how legislation,frameworks,codes of practice and policies relating to positive behavior support are applied to own working practice? All aspects of my job are regulated by policies and current legislation,and policies have been designed to cover all aspects of legislation such as the children’s act,which provides a code of practice to enable us to provide the best possible care and support for children and young people,we have inspections from ofsted who ensure we are meeting not only care standards,but also those relating to behaviour and how we encourage positive behaviour is evaluated,I have the responsibility of recording all incidents of behaviour support and these include both positive and negative behaviour. Within the setting we work under the early years foundation stage framework,we follow many school policies that we are given to read and it is our responsibility to familiarize ourselves with them,in particular we must act in accordance to one which is our promoting good behaviour policy. The policy for promoting good behaviour we have is reviewed and signed by staff bi-annually as a school we aim to develop a school behaviour policy based on a sense of community and shared values which is understood,supported and followed by parents,teachers,children and governors,creating a caring family atmosphere in which teaching and learning can take place in a safe and happy environment for all,in house training/courses maybe given to promote positive behaviour if new research has been found then this will be passed onto all members of staff,copies of policies are available at all times and all staff have access to them.

When a verbal warning can be given and when the risk of injury or damage is very little,it is best not to use intervention,when the child/young person has had (and you are aware) some sort of physical,emotional abuse,has a disability or no understanding of the concept. 1.4 - Explain who needs to be informed of any incidents where restrictive interventions have been used? - Head/deputy head...
