Introduction

C1. Analyse the issues which are essential to confidentiality and objective observation. Confidentiality and objective observation are both subjects which are to be seen as important. Confidentiality is a very important element in teaching, to keep confidentiality means to speak of things seen in the workplace only to other team members or supervisor if it is a concern, but no one else outside of the faculty must be informed. Using confidentiality, you are assuring the safety of the child and their families. You are also making and keeping a reputation for you and your school setting and are gaining the trust of parents and the local community by protecting the children and working to their best interests. Every child and family is diverse; they all have their differences so including every child in your observations shows unbiased which means putting your inclusive practice to use effectively. The issues which are essential to confidentiality and objective observation are; personal attitudes and values; sharing information; safe storage of information; working with parents; legal requirements and policies. ...read more.

Personal Attitudes and Values This is essential to confidentiality and objective observation, because a bias is a stereotyped attitude towards people of different racial, cultural, religious or social class backgrounds. These involve personal values and prejudices that affect our ability to be objective. When thinking of confidentiality you must not let your personal views affect your care giving, and if you mention confidential information you're breaching policy and also being bias. If this is not adhered to, not only will you breach the settings policy but you are also not using good practice safeguarding the children. The children in the setting may become less confident and you may create a low self-esteem for those children, a practitioner should be the stability in the setting making sure the children feel safe and comfortable. Safe Storage The staff should be aware of the need for confidentiality and of the issue with storing this type of information, keeping the security and welfare of the child. ...read more.

Conclusion

All settings include this in their settings because of the safeguarding policies to keep children and their families safe and protected. Working With Parents This will always arise in a child setting because you will have constant contact and interaction with the parents. It's essential to confidentiality because it's important you don't discuss another child with a parent of one child, or even mention names. When speaking to parents it must be professional so any thoughts you have on an individual parent cannot affect the way you treat them or their child. Objective observation is essential with this issue because if you have observed their child, the parent has a right to know about the assessment. Issues with this that may affect your practice with children are those which are family related or those issues in the setting between practitioner and child which could therefore mean the parent may not feel that their child is getting what they need from the setting or the practitioners. So keeping a professional relationship with them and making sure they know their children are in safe hands and progressing according to the norms will be good practice. ...read more.
