Being Me! Personal Care Plan

Creating and maintaining a meaningful and inclusive personal care plan for each child is essential in supporting settings to meet a child’s needs.

The new ‘Being Me!’ is just one part of a child’s Personal Care Plan. You will have enrolment forms, Seemis, children’s profiles, possibly medication forms, child protection forms, Child’s Plans or Pre-school Form 1s and potentially other documents that create a full picture and plan for your children.

Please watch the bitesize session and read the guidance document and notes on each section before implementing this as part of your personal planning approach. For further information on personal planning please refer to the Care Inspectorate Guide for providers on personal planning.

When watching the bitesize session it is useful to have the guidance and documents to hand. If you require further support or guidance please contact your link EYESO.

First Aid Boxes

If you have queries regarding what should be in your first aid boxes this is what was recommended by the trainers at recent training. Please note the section in pink at the bottom about what not to include. As a minimum we would suggest checking the contents of your first aid box termly to ensure items are in date and any items used are replaced. It can be helpful to add this to your Quality Assurance calendar.

‘Being Me’ coming soon!

As promised we can now announce that the new ‘Being Me’ will be available to download from the blog on Monday 13th June. For those of you interested and not involved in the pilot this will replace the existing ‘All About Me’ and ‘Personal Care Plan’.

A short bite size session will also be posted on the blog to support settings in how to use the new document and we would highly recommend you take the time to watch this before using the document.

We hope this will allow enough preparation time for those of you wanting to implement this change next session.
