Mrs Rachael Hassan -Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
If we have significant concerns about a child, we have a duty to communicate these concerns to Social Care. It is then a matter for Social Care to decide on the steps to be taken.
If we make the decision to speak to Social Care about your child, we will always undertake to share our intention to do so with you unless we deem that doing so could put the child at greater risk of harm, or impede a criminal investigation.
We fully appreciate that this can be very distressing but we have to follow the procedures required by the Herefordshire Safeer Children and Young Person Partnership.
