Inverclyde Council Education Service has Child Protection Guidelines and Procedures which all schools and establishments are required to follow. Education Services work very closely with other agencies namely Police Scotland, Social Work Services, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and the children’s reporter to support children.
Common responsibilities of all staff are to protect children from abuse and exploitation, to respond appropriately when abuse is identified, and to ensure whenever possible that all children are able to exercise their right to be raised in a warm, stimulating and safe environment with the support of staff, families and carers.
If a member of staff has a concern regarding a child’s safety and protection it is our statutory duty to report these concerns to the appropriate agency. All actions taken are in the interest of the child. Further information leaflets for parents regarding child protection are available in the Centre or click on the links below.
