How do I report a concern?
You can approach any member of the Child Protection Team and mention that you are concerned for the safety of a child. If you don’t feel able to approach the Child Protection Team directly then please speak with any member of staff – they will know how to follow up your concern.
What will happen next?
The concern will be logged with the Child Protection Team. You may be asked to fill in a concern form and speak with a member of the team but the original person you spoke to will come with you if you want them to.
What does the Child Protection Team do with my concern?
It is hard to say exactly what will happen because it depends on what has been reported and whether or not similar concerns have been expressed. Sometimes concerns can be cleared up by talking with the child or the parents. Sometimes children will be actively monitored for further concerns. More serious concerns may be passed on to Social Care or even the police.
How will I know that my concern has been followed up?
Although the team will not be able to discuss details with you (due to confidentiality), they will be happy to let you know that it is being dealt with.
Will people know it was me that raised the concern?
Staff will try to ensure confidentiality for you however confidentiality cannot be 100% guaranteed. The first concern is, and always will be, the safety of the child.
Use of Images (School)
When your child starts Forty Hill CE School, and for the duration of their education here, parents/carers will be asked to complete a permission form to allow images of your child to be published by the school on the school's website, newsletters or in press releases. If you would like to change your parental preference at any time, then please contact the school office.
Use of Cameras and Digital Images (Parents/Carers) - 'THINK BEFORE WE POST'
Forty Hill CE School are happy for parents and carers to take photos and videos at school events for personal use but please could we remind you that these images must not be distributed or put online unless they are only of your own children. This is to protect and safeguard all members of the community.
