Everyone employed by the practice, and working in partnership with the practice, has a responsibility in relation to child protection and safeguarding children. In most cases this will be the referral of concerns picked up during day-to-day contact with children and families — and particularly children identified as being at risk.
This policy aims to outline the role that the practice has in relation to child protection, the procedures that staff should take and guidance on issues related to child protection generally. It is not exhaustive. All staff should use as a rule of thumb the needs and safety of the child as being at the centre of any decision they make.
