3.1 Explain why it is important to ensure children and young people are protected from harm within the work setting.

Any professional working with children or young people is responsible for the care and well being of those children. Making sure that a child is safe on or out of a school setting is of paramount importance. Not only does it make a child or young person feel safe in a learning environment but it also gives the child the security to develop and achieve from an early age. For children to be effectively protected, it is essential that everyone accepts the responsibility of their role and to also be protected in that role. E.g. when escorting a child to the toilet or a child needs to be undressed due to any accident, it is vital that another member of staff or child is present as to not allow any allegations of misconduct. Physical contact between child and adult is important for building caring and trustworthy relationships but only when handled in an acceptable and responsible manner. There may be times, especially with younger children, occasions where a distressed or upset child needs comfort and encouragement which may include physical comforting, in these cases employees should use their discretion and common sense in order for allegations not to follow.

Hope that helps a little...

Try again!

Policies and procedures are set in place to not only protect children and young people but also adults who work with them, it is vital that all professionals follow safe working practices to ensure that not only children are protected but also themselves. E.g. if a disclosure is made by a child to a member of staff it is vital that is always taken seriously even if it is proven to be untrue or inaccurate. The child or young person should be listened to in a calm and supportive manner which will allow them to talk freely and openly, it is also imperative that they are reassured about telling someone and how hard it must have been for them. Once the disclosure has been made and the child is calmed and secure, the employee or adult should inform the designated safeguarding officer, relevant notes should be written down in the child’s own words including names that were mentioned, time and place of disclosure and place and background of the disclosure.

Hopefully thats the right one ~ its been a LONG day!

Hi
i wrote this first aand then looked through our policy and procedures folder for our setting and wrote about what is in them:

In every setting there should be on display or on view a policy and procedure folder. This is there for parents to look at and for them to see how we support safe working. The policies and procedures are put into place to benefit staff, children, parents/carers and visitors. In our setting we have a free flow system that enables the children to access each room/garden when they would like to. This also means that staff are never in a closed room with children and all staff are aware that they move around where the children are playing.
It is very important for parents to trust who is looking after their children, one of the main areas of gaining trust is having a CRB enhanced disclosure completed, every staff member should be CRB checked, no other persons should be left alone with the children (work experience etc). There are three types of CRB checks (basic, standard and enhanced), when working with children or vulnerable adults you have a greater degree of contact, this is why you need to have the CRB enhanced disclosure. This is put into place to protect the children/young people from harm or significant harm.
Children need physical contact of some form such as when he/she hurts themselves or if they are upset for any other reason, it’s knowing and understanding when it is appropriate to give the contact. This is usually given when the child is upset, you can then encourage the child to play with you so the child gets distracted from why they were upset.

These are the policy and procedures that i looked at within our setting:
  • Nappy changing policy and procedure
  • Positive behaviour policy and procedure
  • Supervision of children on outings and visits policy and procedure
  • Safeguarding children and child protection policy and procedure
  • Information sharing policy and procedure
  • Whistle blowing policy and procedure
I also listed the Acts that each policy and procedure cover e.g. information sharing- Legal framework, Data Protection Act 1998 & Human Rights Act 1998


If you can't get any policy and procedures put a search into google and i am sure you will get plenty come up and then you have your reference for information.

Hope it gives you ideas

Lynne
