By following good practice, you provide appropriate care, if I did not individuals would suffer.
I supervise the children to a relevant standard, as outlined in the Child Protection Act along with health and safety policy, staff should watch the children closely to prevent and minimise any injury. Young children will often overlook the risk involved when challenging their own ability.

My own role would link to the wider sector via liaison with professional agencies, if through my observations, a problem has been highlighted it may have to be referred to another agency to enable the problem to be dealt with by specialists.

I would be able to provide evidence so that the agency can support the child appropriately.
