Model Policy Framework for Child Protection in Sefton Schools
Tracy McKeating, Locality Manager (Sefton MBC) has developed a model policy framework for child protection in schools. The framework is aligned with Keeping Children Safe in Education 2018 (DfE).
As part of the OfSTED inspection process, schools are required to explain the process of making referrals to Children's Social Care and they have to evidence an example of a referral including the schools contributions to the process and the outcome of referrals. There is also an emphasis on the learning from serious case reviews (SCRs) and children missing education (CME). The model policy framework is written with the local context for schools to utilise and adapt for their individual setting.
