Question and answer
Outline the policies and procedures that should be followed in response to concerns or evidence of bullying and explain the reasons why they are in place
The categories of abuse Through their day-to-day contact with children and direct work with families, [ education staff have a crucial role to play in noticing indicators of possible abuse or neglect and referring those concerns to the appropriate investigative agencies (social services and police). Training is provided to all staff on appointment and every 3 years by our designated person for
child protection. A copy of the Pan – Sussex child protection procedures and other associated information is available for staff. Evidence of abuse can include: Physical Abuse: non accidental injuries, bruising, wounding burns, fractures - indicators include: • obvious signs of injury; • injuries which are unusual or unexplained; and • injuries, which while explained are frequent. Neglect: the chronic inattention to basic needs - indicators include: • dirty, unkempt appearance; • developmental delay; • low self esteem; and • hunger. Sexual abuse: the involvement of children or young people in sexual activity, this includes the abuse of a position of trust by an adult with professional responsibility to a child - indicators include: • physical difficulties such as wetting or soiling; • extreme variations in behaviour; • sexualised language, behaviour of play; and • indirect disclosure through play, drawing or written work. Emotional Abuse or neglect: persistent emotional ill treatment such as the extreme denial of love, affection or approval - indicators include: • low self esteem, unhappiness, fear, distress or anxiety; • attention seeking behaviours; and • emotional developmental delay. Staff at Cottesmore St Mary will be trained to recognise and respond to the categories and potential indicators of abuse. Action to be taken Sometimes concerns that a child or young person is suffering or is likely to be suffering some form of abuse will build up slowly over time, and some will be as a response to a child presenting an injury or mark or talking about a worrying issue. ]
