´╗┐Kirtan Kaur 416.000 UNIT 5 E1: Describe the responsibility of the practitioner in professional relationships The responsibilities of the practitioner concerning relationships with children would be to always maintain confidentiality so this means not talking about the children or their families to people who do not need to know. It means keeping important and valuable information about the child and their families locked up safely so that people do not have access to it.

This links to practice in many ways because practitioners are being suggested to go to these training sessions as it will support them in their effort to support the child and build on their professional status. When the practitioners obtain the accurate skills to work with the children it makes it significantly easier to support and work with the children and their families. Play England?s aim is for al all children to have the freedom, opportunity, space and funds to play throughout their childhood and teenage lives. Some of their aims are to ensure that the neighbourhoods where people live are child friendly so this helps children to regularly play outside, another aim of Play England is to make certain that the importance of play is well recognized throughout England. This links to practice because in an early year setting it is important that children are always given the chance to play whether outdoors or indoors.
