What to do if worried about a child

Cause for Concern

Our first priority is of course your child’s welfare and school is required to take any reasonable action to ensure the safety of its pupils. However there may be occasions when we have reason to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill-treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse. We will ensure that our concerns about a child are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child’s welfare. In this case school is obliged to follow the Child Protection procedures and inform the Children's Social Services of the concern.

 

If you are worried about a child's safety please do not hesitate to contact the school or contact Children's First Contact Services Sutton 020 8770 6001 / 6072 or Croydon's Single Point of Contact 020 8255 2888 straight away.
