Identify the positive outcomes for children and young people that practitioners should be striving to achieve
The 5 positive outcomes for children and young people that practitioners should be striving to achieve under the framework of Every Child Matters are: 1 - To be healthy: enjoying good physical and mental health and living a healthy lifestyle. Physically healthy
Mentally and emotionally healthy
Choose not to take illegal drugs
Being healthy is not just about eating lots of fruit and drinking 8 glasses of water each day. It's about young people enjoying a healthy lifestyle, feeling good about themselves and having good emotional and mental health. We hope that all children should have access to health services, good nutrition and a good lifestyle.
2 - Stay safe: being protected from harm and neglect.
Safe from maltreatment, neglect, violence and sexual exploitation Safe from accidental injury and death
Safe from bullying and discrimination
Safe from crime and anti-social behaviour in and out of school Have security, stability and are cared for
We should always make sure that all of the children are protected and safeguarded. We follow the correct procedure with regards to child protection issues. We ensure the building is safe. We risk assess the hall and make sure the windows and doors are secure. We make sure that all staff are appropriately checked and vetted. We ensure that there is no equipment that is dangerous. During circle time we go over the rules and regulations in the setting. We do a fire drill once a term so they know what to do.
3 - Enjoy and achieve: getting the most out of life and developing the skills for adulthood. We should be enabling learners to make good progress in their work and personal development and to enjoy their education, including: Ready for school
Attend and enjoy school
Achieve stretching national educational standards at school...
