Unit 301 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults
Confidentiality, Data Protection and Disclosure in schools
DfEE Sex and Relationship Education Guidance (July 2000) states 'Schools should have a clear and explicit confidentiality policy which is advertised to pupils, staff, parents and visitors'.
The Data Protection, Freedom of Information and Human Rights Acts all need to be taken into consideration (see below).
Schools need to develop their policy on confidentiality (with particular reference to giving support and advice to children and young people on issues relating to sex and relationships).
It is important schools have an established procedure for dealing with confidentiality, which is understood by pupils, staff, parents, carers and visitors rather than develop ad hoc arrangements in response to a crisis. The procedures need to be consistent and protect the interests of both pupils and staff. Having a policy will help to ensure there is a shared understanding of how confidentiality operates in your school community. A consistent, shared ethos and practice will help pupils, staff, parents, carers and visitors deal with and know where they stand with confidential issues and will help you to deal with disclosure of information and establish ways of working (for example in PSHE) which respect privacy and avoid unnecessary personal disclosure.
This document does not suggest that all members of the school community should offer the same levels of confidentiality. Steps need to be taken to ensure that confidential disclosures are made to the appropriate person at the appropriate time. In order to ensure this, all members of the school community need to be aware of the limits of confidentiality available in different circumstances and by different individuals.
As part of a whole school policy on confidentiality schools should consider other aspects of school life...
Outcome 3Understand how to monitor children and young people’s development and interventions that should take place if this is not following the expected pattern.
3.1 Explain how to monitor children and young people’s development using different methods.
There are numerous different methods of monitoring including: observations, body language, behaviour, moods, written records, assessment framework, information from parents/carers, work colleagues and standard measurements.
The adult will need to use a few different methods aswell as opportunities to monitor the development of children and young people.
It is important that you understand the purpose of the observations that you do as part of your role. You do this because you will need to report any findings to the class teacher who will then report it to the parent/carer. It’s important that teachers and parent/carers share any information about the child or young person’s best interests. The observation can be done in a formal or informal way. There are advantages to doing both these aswell as disadvantages.
The informal observation will be those that you do every day when you are working with the children or young people. These observations will be small but over time they will enable you to build up a picture of the child or young person. The adults may notice that an individual is then able to understand new concepts very easily. It’s likely that the adult...

1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults
Effective communication is important when developing relationships with anybody but essential when building positive relationships with children. It is important that we use effective communication skills as children will model themselves on the adults around them. Good communication will develop a solid relationship with a child which in turn will help you gain their trust and respect. This will make them feel more comfortable in their setting and settle in to new routines or activities confidently. It will also provide them with the reassurances necessary during transition periods in their school life. Clear communication is required to ensure the children know exactly what is to be expected from them and also...
Advantages having all pupils in the same uniform gives the students a sense of belonging and reduces any teasing from other children and families comparing the families financial status. Outsiders can identify clearly that a child attends a certain school if they abscond. The Logo\uniform advertises the standard and ethos of the school. A smartly dressed student sends a positive message to the surrounding community out on school trips and visits out of school.
If the pupil is wearing the schools uniform and the child lets the school down behaving inappropriate this may tarnish the school`s reputation.
Extra costs of badges, bookmarks and book bags (which are part of the uniform) does add extra costs to families and can be an expense.
The logo added jumpers are a lot more expensive and a child who does not have one could feel out of place if most children in his\hers class wear them.
Brochure About the School
Having a school brochure at a New Start Meeting can be shared collectively between staff members and parents any unfamiliar terms and phrases can be explained further to the parents and important information can be highlighted to read in their own time at home.
The advantage having a brochure is families without access to the internet can find relevant information if they need it.
A brochure is a quick way to find schools contact number, or the...
...UNIT 4222-301 PROMOTE COMMUNICATION IN HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE
EXPLAIN HOW PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS MAY USE AND/OR INTERPRET COMMUNICATION METHODS IN DIFFERENT WAYS
Our knowledge and understanding of the words we use and how they communicate them has been influenced by our culture. A culture is the community or group an individual was born, grew up and live in. Our community or group have a lot of people who have an influence of how we interpret things.
Our family has the biggest influence on how we communicate and interpret things. Our family have a shared experience of the world and how we interpret things, what makes us laugh and cry, what might be the right display of communication and emotion to us, to others it could be seen as bizarre, not right and they have no understanding of what we are trying to communicate.
To look within a family, non-verbal communication can be very subtle, things can be so layered deep that there is a familiarisation, a subtle look when within the family setting to an outsider that say something to the individuals within the family, they may roll their eyes when the outsider uses certain words to describe something, such as the use of swearing, to the family they are all thinking ‘they are about to go on one again’. When in fact the outsider is just in fact describing something and are not about to go into a highly emotional state.
Younger generations of families...
...UNIT 331 OUTCOME3
3.1. Explain how you monitor a child’s behaviour using the following methods.
This is a framework to help practitioners working with children, young people and families to assess children and young people’s additional needs for earlier, and more effective services, and develop a common understanding of those needs and how to work together to meet them. There is an assessment framework that is used in the UK, which basically states the approach that must be used to assess the needs of a child or young person.
It is called CAF (care assessment framework) this is a four-step process whereby practitioners can identify a child's or young person's needs early, assess those needs holistically, deliver coordinated services and review progress. The CAF is designed to be used when a practitioner is worried about how well a child or young person is progressing (e.g. concerns about their health, development, welfare, behaviour, progress in learning or any other aspect of their wellbeing).
A child or young person, or their parent/carer, raises a concern with a practitioner or a child's or young person's needs are unclear, or broader than the practitioner's service can address.
Step 1 Identify needs early
Step 2 Asses those needs
Step 3 Deliver integrated services
Step 4 Review progress
Observations (literally, watching children) are what we carry out everyday as we...
...Unit301 – Communication and professional relationships
Effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults because this encourages cooperation between pupils, parents and colleagues. It helps provide a challenging and stimulating learning environment which is accessible to all pupils. Everyone will feel welcomed and valued; everyone is respected as an individual. And finally, this will ensure a considerate and caring attitude is demonstrated towards pupils.
The main principles of building positive relationships with children are remembering their names and pronouncing them correctly, being approachable, avoiding stereotypes and communicating in a sensitive way. The main principles of building positive relationships with young people are showing a genuine interest in what they say, listening to their point of view and showing them they are valued and important people. The main principles of building positive relationships with adults are behaving with courtesy and integrity, using language appropriate to them and remembering confidentiality.
When you communicate with adults, you need to avoid unnecessary technical jargon, use preferred names and modes of address, make them feel welcome and help to avoid possible misinterpretations concerning cultural differences by using TAs who share local community languages. When communicating with children, use...
Communication and Professional Relationships with Children, Young People and Adults
1.1 Explain what is meant by effective communication.
Why is effective communication important?
The term effective communication means that both parties consider how they approach other people and how they respond. With effective communication we are more likely to communicate information if we have positive relationships within our day to day dealings with other people.
This also includes dealing with parents, outside agencies etc. If positive relationships are established, then communication will, in turn, become more effective. This means information will be passed on more effectively and support maybe more beneficial.
Without effective communication misunderstanding may occur, which could lead to bad feeling or issues between staff members or parents etc. The long term effect of this could be that vital information may not be disclosed, which could lead to even further problems.
1.2 Explain the principles of relationship building.
The principles of relationship building with children, young people and adults in any context are that if others are comfortable in our company and have a level of trust, they will be more likely to communicate effectively. If people are suspicious of one another they are likely to avoid one another wherever possible.
It is imperative in all relationship building to establish levels of...
