E105 Statement of ethical consideration In this TMA I have only used material from the setting identified on my Agreement with Confirmer Form. I therefore confirm that I have authorisation from my manager and that I am meeting the requirements stated in the assessment guide for E105 (page 16). When relating to personal experiences in my assignment I will change names to ensure confidentiality is maintained. Summary This report is based on the wellbeing of children in my care experiencing the process of transitions. I have decided to maintain this focus on the emotional side of the aspect as the children and parents in my care seem to be finding this difficult. I have analysed three documents to discover exactly how I promote children's health and wellbeing when in my practice these are; 'a summary of the rights under the convention rights of the child' (unicef), EYFS Effective practice Health and Wellbeing and my own settings safeguarding policy. The action that I recommend is to work more effectively with parents/carers to build good working relationships. Introduction I work in a private day nursery setting full time. The nursery is registered for 71 children and offers full day care for local families in a slightly disadvantaged area. The room I am based in is the baby room and help to take care of babies from 6 weeks - 15months. My role within the nursery is an early year's practitioner. My responsibilities include being a key person, planning and carrying out activities and being a mentor to students. In this assignment I am going to discuss the overall wellbeing of children in my care considering their physical, emotional and social needs. To do this I am going to analyse documents to discover more about my practice in relation to children's wellbeing considering their provision rights, protection and prevention rights and participation rights. I have also devised a key question to help enable me to reflect on my personal practice, "How do I support babies health and wellbeing throughout the transition process to ensure that they continue to reach their full potential?" ...read more.


This would also benefit the child as the parents will be aware of the nursery routine and the activities carried out therefore may decide to adapt their home routine. Draper discusses the importance of working together in partnership with parents "Parents and practitioners need each other and have useful differences in their approach that can complement each other. Parents are experts on their own individual child and practitioners offer expertise in this stage of children's development and learning" (Draper, L, 2010, page 271). (PP5) Conclusion I feel I have underestimated the importance of parent relationships during transitions because I have now realised the main issues affecting the children with the transition process is not only the children being moved into a different situation but also the parents getting upset, confused and unsure.(CS2) I believe that this also has a major impact on how the child thinks and therefore I feel I can do more to help this situation. The purpose of my report was to discover how exactly I support children's health and wellbeing and find out what I can do to further improve it. I therefore believe I have answered my key question efficiently. Through analysing the documents (appendix 1, 2 and 3) I feel I have gained a much greater knowledge in the different ways I can help to support children's health and wellbeing. I will continue to work together as a team to help every child achieve the Every Child Matters 5 key outcomes which are being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution, achieving economic wellbeing. I will ensure children are kept safe by following my settings safeguarding policy and always keep in mind the convention rights of the child. Recommendations I believe that practitioners should give parents more support as well as the children as they are also finding the process of transitions difficult. To do this I would suggest that practitioners visit the child and their parents at their own home when settling in as this will give the child opportunity to meet and start to build a relationship in their own environment. ...read more.


This also explains the importance of multiagency working and explains exactly what to do if a child is suspected of being abused or being maltreated. What does the extract say about children's rights? This policy does not state what rights children have however discusses the importance of practitioners protecting and preventing children from harm. What does the extract say about wellbeing and health? "we will work together to help children achieve the every child matters 5 key outcomes, being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution, achieving economic wellbeing". This enables everyone to work together towards the same goals to ensure all children develop sufficiently by offering support and guidance. Does the extract have anything to say about child protection? "we will work together with other agencies to ensure all the children in the setting are protected and stay safe from harm" I feel multiagency working is essential when protecting children as it allows different professionals share their thoughts and views about any particular child (maintaining confidentiality only sharing information that is necessary) I now also realise that this is a major factor when implementing arrangements of a common assessment framework if the child/family requires it. What does the extract say about the practitioner's role (in relation to safeguarding, and promoting children's wellbeing and rights)? "it is the responsibility of all the staff to safeguard every child within the setting" This policy emphasises the importance of everybody keeping children safe. My role is to be able to recognise the signs of abuse and maltreatment and respond appropriately following the procedure and making a referral if necessary. Are equality issues covered? "Other policies and procedures form part of this policy to ensure all children in out care are safeguarded at all times. Please refer too: Equal opportunities policy" I feel equality issues are covered throughout this document and strongly agree with this statement as safeguarding is always at the forefront of my mind and I consider myself to provide equal opportunities to all in every situation. ?? ?? ?? ??
