´╗┐unit 3 assignment 3283 words E1 1. Children act 1989 2. Human rights 1998 3. disability discrimination act 2005 4. COSHH 2002 5. Sex discrimination act 1975 E2 The Children Act 1989 is designed to help keep children safe and well, the act covers protection, parental responsibility and inspection of the setting. The act also made it clear that children and young people?s views had to be taken into consideration when decisions are made. This is put into practise in the setting because the teacher would plan according to the children?s views and opinions of what they like doing. The Human Rights Act 1998 is to do with anyone who is in the UK for any reason. They have fundamental human rights which the government and public authorities are legally obliged to respect. Many of the principles of the Human Rights Act are designed to protect you as a worker within the workplace.For example, you have the right to a private and family life. So an employer who discriminates against a gay worker, for example, may be violating that worker's right to a private life. This would influance the setting because as a memmber of staff the worker in the setting has rights and the setting wouldent be following the policys and legislations by law. COSHH provides a legal framework to protect adults and children against health risks from hazardous substances used at the setting. (COSHH) Regulations 1994 ? identifies hazards, weighing up risks arising from them and deciding what further action you need to take if the risks are significant. Educational establishments must have in place appropriate measures to ensure that the risks to the health and safety of pupils/students from exposure to hazardous substances are minimized in the setting, so no one is harmed or in danger in the setting. The disability discrimination act 2005 requires employers to ensure that disabled people have safe access to premises and safe access in the event of evacuation. ...read more.


doing this it would help boost the child?s self esteem and confidence to do the work without wondering if it is right or wrong. Time would also be a flexibility as to when do homework, this would help the child because the more time to do it and be more independent as you could set different research challengers so the child could find different resources as they would have a more length of time. C1 John Bowlby is a theorist who believed that if a child loses access to the mother or is separated from her at any point during the first 5 years of the Childs life then the child may suffer harmful effects. This is called maternal deprivation. The consequence that Bowlby stated that can be resulted from this is the Childs intellectual and language development may fail to develop physically. Bowlby got his evidence from a study that he did, which was about 44 juvenile thieves. He interviewed both groups of 44 thieves and another group of 44 children who were not thieves out of the thieves he found that 17 were experienced maternal deprivation before the age of 5 years but in the group of non thieves, he found that only 3 of the 44 reported maternal deprivation. However he found out that boys suffered maternal deprivation trough illnesses. Rutter another theorist believed that boys aged 9 and 15 had maternal deprivation bund those who had suffered maternal deprivation was due to family and psychotic problems. He found out that anti-social behaviour was more likely when separation from mother occurred because of family or psychiatric problems rather than illness. Bowlby theory supports empowerment because if the settings know that a child has been separated by their mother, they should allow the child to do individual activities linked with separation. By doing this the setting would be empowering the child, as they would be supporting them and guiding them trough their learning. ...read more.


As setting you would provide information about their child and the setting and if you have a multi-cultural setting you could write in more than one language because not all parents would speak English. A Legislation effects the working practice because it says what they can and cannot do. Legislation is put in place to protect the children and practitioners such as the childcare act 2004 and the heath and safety at work act 1974.Working with young children can influence the working practice in the setting, such as the curriculum framework, this would influence your work because you get to work with the child individually so if the child is behind in the curriculam frame work which would be the eyfs if the child was aged 0-5. This would influence the setting because you would have to work with the child individually so the childs planning would be different to the other children. This would mean that you would have to hire more staff to cover the education of the other children. Funding in the setting would also matter because you will need to provide best equiptment that there is and if you don?t have any funding it wouldent be possible to have the equiptment that you will need. By having funding it will also influence your working practice because this way you will have more resorses for the children to use and play with. Diversity and equality is also another factor that would definitely influence your working practice because you would need to be aware of diversity when planning work for the children so you don?t discriminate or offend anyone such as saying black people are racist, that might offend someone so you should always remember what you say and also remember to plan according to every ones race, religion, colour and belief such as to celebrate all the festivals in all cultures not just the main ones like eid, Christmas and diwali you should also celebrate the Chinese new year and weask the Buddhist festival. ...read more.
