Transcript of Equality and Diversity

Week 2 Week 1 Promote equality and inclusion in children’s and young peoples settings
2 credits 2.2 Record and reflect how you interact with both children and adults that respects their beliefs, culture, values, preferences. Give examples.
3.1/3.2 Imagine you are about to take part in a performance management review with the manager and the focus will focus on your ability to promote equality, diversity and inclusion. In order to prepare you should organise and support an activity that will demonstrate you ability to use inclusive practice. When you have completed your activity you should reflect upon it focusing on how you demonstrated inclusive practice and how you supported others to promote equality and rights.
3.3 describe an incident or direct Practical assessment task Mary – Ann has just stared a six-week placement in a creche. It seems a happy environment and she has enjoyed her first week. However she has begun to notice something going on that makes her feel less comfortable. The managers own child and on of the other workers children also attend the creche and Mary Anne notices that often when the children need help, for example when putting on coats for outside play, or washing hands for lunch these members of staff attend to their own children first. Mary Ann thinks that some of the other children notice this and perhaps don't feel as special as the creche workers children. One day Mary Ann observes the managers daughter grab a toy roughly from a little boy, who begins to cry and grabs the toy back, causing the managers daughter to cry as well. The manager did not witness the whole incident, but , on hearing her daughter crying, walks briskly across to tell the boy to give back the toy and picks up her daughter to give her a cuddle. Mary Ann feels very uneasy about this incident and does not know how to respond.
In what way is this an example of discrimination?

Who is being affected by the discrimination and how?

If you were Mary Ann what would you do?

How do you think the manager should manage having her own child in the setting? Case study Highlight the the following things that challenge stereotypes and confront discrimination.
Swapping the gender of leading characters in songs and rhymes.
Integrating learning about different cultures into the curriculum.
Ignoring stereotyped beliefs if they are aired between staff in private.
Only keeping books and toys in the nursery that conform to normal ideas.
Intervening sensitively when children make racist comments to one another.
Treating everyone the same.
Allowing children to sort out conflicts based on stereotyped beliefs on their own.
Inviting people whose job roles challenge sterotypes to speak to children. 3.3 Challenging discrimination. Make a list 3.2 How can you support others to promote equality and rights? Reflective practice.

Being a role model. 3.1/3.2 Why do you think reflective practice and being a role model will help to promote equality and diversity and inclusion. Think of ways that you can promote opportunities for inclusion in your placement. 3.1 Demonstrate actions that model interactive practice. Yalda and Rahim are third generation British Pakistanis. They have come with their daughters to live in a small, typically English village. She and her husband were fed up with the pace of city and and wanted their girls to be educated at a small school, with beautiful countryside as their playground Initially a few of the villagers asked if they were going to open a corner shop or and Indian restaurant and were disappointed this wasn't the plan. The girls also experienced curiosity from other children. Some attention was drawn by their skin colour and the fact that they had pierced ears. Yalda joined the parents volunteers at the school and was approached by the head teacher to help the senior pupils prepare an assembly about diversity.
Why do you think the residents and their children made remarks about the family?

What do you understand by the term third generation British Pakistani? Can you think of a more appropriate term?

Is it racist to ask Yalda to help with the assembly and what ways do you think Yalda could contribute? 2.2 show how you interact with individuals that respects their beliefs culture, values and preferences 2.1/ 2.2 Activity
