Lecture Objective:
To Recognise the Relevant Legislation and Legal Frameworks for Children and Young People
The world's leaders officially recognised the human rights of all children and young people under 18 by signing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The right to a childhood (including protection from harm)
The right to be educated (including all girls and boys completing primary school)
The right to be healthy (including having clean water, nutritious food and medical care)
The right to be treated fairly (including changing laws and practices that are unfair on children)
The right to be heard (including considering children's views)
Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) 1989
Every Child Matters (ECM) 2003
Being Healthy
Physical, mental, emotional and sexual health; participation in sport and exercise; healthy eating and the drinking of water; the ability to recognise and combat personal stress; having self-esteem; and the avoidance of drug taking including smoking and alcohol.

Staying Safe
Ensuring that ‘children’ stay safe from harm.

Complying with child protection legislation, undertaking CRB checks, protecting young people and vulnerable adults from bullying, harassment and other forms of maltreatment, discrimination, crime, anti-social behaviour, sexual exploitation, exposure to violence and other dangers.
Enjoying and Achieving
Attending and enjoying education and training, and the extent to which learners make progress with regard to their learning and their personal development.

Arrangements to assess and monitor learners’ progress, support learners with poor attendance and behaviour, and meet the needs of potentially underachieving groups. Also relevant will be the extent and effectiveness of the ‘enrichment’ of provision by promoting social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities.
Making a Positive Contribution
The development of self-confidence and enterprising behaviour, together with their understanding of rights and responsibilities, and their active participation in community life.

Ensure understanding of rights and responsibilities, the extent to which young people are consulted about key decisions, and the provision of opportunities for them to develop and lead provider and community activities. There should also be a focus on enabling young people to develop appropriate independent behaviour and to avoid engaging in antisocial behaviour.
Achieving Economic Wellbeing
The acquisition of the skills and knowledge needed for employment and for economically independent living.

Arrangements for developing self-confidence, enterprise and teamwork, the provision of good careers advice and training for financial competence, and the accessibility of opportunities for work experience and work-based learning
The Children Act 1989 aimed to ensure that the welfare of the child was paramount, working in partnership with parents to protect the child from harm.

The Act was intended to strengthen the child’s legal position; to give him/her equal rights, feelings and wishes; and to ensure children were consulted and kept informed.

The Children Act 2004 aims to further improve children’s lives and gives the legal underpinning to ‘Every Child Matters: Change for Children’ (2004).
Children and Young Persons Act 2008
Its main purpose is to effect the recommendations set out in the White Paper ‘Care Matters: Transforming the Lives of Children and Young People in Care' and "forms part of the Government's programme to ensure children and young people receive high quality care and support."

The Act includes provisions in relation to the well-being of children and young people and private fostering. It has a particular focus on older young people in care and those making the transition from care.
