Summary

Protecting children from abuse has never been more central to our welfare system than it is now. Schools, and the people who work there, are vital to the government's vision for child protection. New laws, guidance and standards all set out what educational establishments must provide in order to meet their legal obligations.

This book brings all these sources together to provide detailed and practical advice to help the busy teacher or school manager. Based on years of direct experience in advising schools, the author offers a realistic and informed account of the inter-agency system and of the particular contribution of schools within it, including:

  • information on the legal and procedural frameworks
  • responding to concerns about children's welfare
  • meeting inspection standards for effective governance
  • promoting inter-agency communication
  • managing allegations against education staff
  • wider issues of child safety, including bullying and child employment.

Protecting Children provides a guide through the minefield, balancing the needs of parents, professionals and pupils. It will be essential reading for all designated and newly-qualified teachers, school managers, governors and LEA officers.
