Reporting and Acting on Child Abuse and Neglect Consultation

The government has launched a public consultation

The government has launched a public consultation addressing the question of whether there should be a formal obligation for people who work with children or are in a position of trust to report child abuse or neglect to the authorities and/or have a duty to act in such circumstances. The consultation was launched on 21 July 2016 and is due to close on 13 October 2016. ISC is drafting a response on behalf of the sector which will be circulated to the Associations for approval. If your school intends to submit its own submission, we invite you to share your submission with ISC, should you wish to.
