Transcript of CYP Core 3.4: Support children and young people’s health and
Children and young people: -
Need a safe but challenging environment
Need to understand that the world can be a dangerous place
Who are sheltered or overprotected from risk and challenge will not be:
- able to make judgements about their own strengths and skills
- well-equipped to resist peer pressure in their later years
Dilemma between the rights of children and health and safety requirements (3.2)
The challenge for practitioners is balancing the need for safety against the need for children and young people to explore risks
Children and young people need to explore their own levels of risk taking but in safe environments with qualified first aid personnel at hand should accidents arise
If we do not enable children and young people to take risks, then they will seek them out when adults are not around
Supporting children and young people to assess and manage risk (3.3)
For Assessment Criteria 3.3 you have to give an example from your own practice of how you have supported a child/young person to access and manage risks
Have you experienced a situation where a child/young person is at risk of harming themselves? If so, explain,
What you considered to be the risk to them?
How you intervened?
How you explained to the child/young person that they were at risk of harming themselves.?

CYP Core 3.4: Support children and young people’s health and safety
3.1. Explain why it is important to take a balanced approach to risk management
3.2. Explain the dilemma between the rights and choices of children and young people and health and safety requirements
3.3. Give example from own practice of supporting children or young people to assess and manage risk
4.1. Explain the policies and procedures of the setting or service in response to accidents, incidents, emergencies and illness
4.2. Identify the correct procedures for recording and reporting accidents, incidents, injuries, signs of illness and other emergencies
A totally risk free environment lacks challenges and stimulation and this leads to children and young people becoming bored and exhibiting signs of inappropriate behaviour
Children and young people need to see or experience the consequences of not taking care
It is important to strike the right balance
