Outcome 1: know the policies and procedures of the setting for promoting children and young people’s positive behaviour.
1. Describe the policies and procedures of the settings relevant to promoting children and young people.
Policies and procedures are in place for the safety of the children and to help follow the ‘every child matters’ there are many policies in place to adhere to promoting positive behaviour. These can be as follows:
At this age children are learning how to behave appropriately. Many of the things they do are normal for their stage of development and we help them to learn when something is dangerous or harmful to themselves or others, and to make positive choices in their behaviour. We do this buy
Noticing and acknowledging positive behaviours.
Using clear and consistent boundaries across the nursery.
Explaining the consequences of some behaviours and offering different choices.
Sharing information with parents/carers about their children’s behaviour.
Providing strategies to support turn-taking encouraging them to share.
Communicating and showing positive behaviour, using different strategies.
Acknowledging feelings to encourage empathy.
Creating an environment that reduces conflict e.g. ensuring there are enough and the right resources.
Providing planned opportunities to discuss behaviour and feelings e.g. at circle time.
Code of conduct
All staff are expect to follow the code of conduct within the work setting. The code of conduct involves the following:
We will provide a warm secure environment, which will enable each child to develop personally, socially and emotionally.
Children will feel valued and respected as individuals and encouraged to do the same for others.
All staff are aware of and safeguard the "Rights of the Children".
Children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum, which will help their overall development.
