Information, protocols and policies

Information and advice for people who work with children, young people and families.

Children missing education

We believe that by adopting a robust and clear protocol in relation to children missing education it aims to ensure that our safeguarding responsibilities are met. We effectively ensure a child’s safety when we know how and where children are receiving their education.

DNA (did not attend)

It is recognised that many children miss appointments in hospital and community settings and are not available at home to be seen by staff working in different agencies.
