Cause for Concern and Information Sharing

Staff are expected to report any cause for concern to the Designated Lead. Sometimes, we need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies, when there are concerns about a child’s welfare.  We will ensure that concerns are discussed with the child/children’s parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would have a negative impact on the child’s welfare.
