Hi, your specific upbringing, your culture, what you value, what you beleive in, what you think about partnerships and other people's standard of living, their transport, what you personally like and what you personally dislike, your experience with different parenting styles for example how one might use smacking to manage behaviour and another use listening, observation, explanation & reflection to deal with behaviour can all potentially influence the way you work and your behaviour, or rather the way you act when faced with different situations, how you respond to difficulty, discrimination and how you express yourself - your own individual way of communicating.
This criteria asks you to consider your legal obligation in openly welcoming the children and their families or carers from all walks of like, countries, income and to be able to offer a level of provision that respects each one of them equally without judgement.
Your setting will have policies and procedures in place to make sure it works within the guidelines of its care, learning and development framework and in doing so comply with law.
Are you able to see what any equal opportunities, inclusion, anti-discrimination or anti-bias, diversity policies and procedures say? and also what your job contract says about how it expects staff to conduct themselves.

Assess how own attitudes, values and behaviourcould impact on work with children and young people
All those working in the school have a legal duty to protect the rights of children and young people. It is important that you examine your own attitudes and values critically, to consider how these may impact on the way you work with children. An individualís background, upbringing and experiences can have an effect on attitudes towards individuals and groups, so it is important to recognise these.
Personal prejudices, which may lead to discriminatory practice, can be overcome through developing a greater understanding of diverse groups in society. For example,you can overcome them by finding out about the religious beliefs andcultures of the children you work with, and by knowing about any specialeducational needs or disabilities.
Do not make assumptions about children and young people.
Finding out about their backgrounds, interests, abilities and individual needs will help you to provide more effective, appropriate and personalised support.
Best wishes xx
