Learning outcome: Be able to complete records
Assessment criteria: Complete records that are accurate, legible, concise and meet organisational and legal requirements
In an Early Years setting, it is important to maintain accurate, legible and concise records that meet both organisational and legal requirements. There are a number of ways in which you can do this, including using an electronic record-keeping system, maintaining paper records or a combination of both.
It is important to ensure that all staff members who are responsible for record-keeping are trained in how to do so effectively. Additionally, it is important to have systems and processes in place to regularly review and update records to ensure they remain accurate and up-to-date.
There are a number of benefits to maintaining accurate records, including being able to track the development of children, identify any areas of concern, and plan for future provision. Additionally, accurate records can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of the current provisions and make improvements where necessary.
For this assessment criterion, you will be required to demonstrate that you are able to complete records as part of your day-to-day work.
