Our first priority is your child’s welfare and we usually discuss any concerns we might have about your child with you. There might be occasions, however, when we have to provide information to or consult other agencies.
All schools and parents have a role to play in ensuring that children are properly protected. If we have any concerns about a child’s safety or welfare, arising from observations, unexplained or unusual behaviour or disclosures, we are legally obliged to pass on our concerns, in absolute confidence, to one of the statutory services such as social services. This could lead to a more formal investigation of these concerns, but at all stages it would be conducted with confidentiality and parents would be notified and involved directly by the statutory agency.
