When a suicide is in question, all that is associated with the suspect will be affected. Brian will need a huge support group to help his transition to emotional wellness. It’s important for parents, teachers and counselors to become familiar with the facts about teens and young adults, especially when it comes to depression and suicide. When teens’ moods disrupt their ability to
It also helps agencies to work together in the future to try and prevent similar things happening again. A report will be written and made public so that people know what has been recommended. The DCSF sets out procedures that should be followed when reviewing a serious case. The duty that a setting has to safeguard its children, staff, parent’s/ carers and support its community in their inspection processes is paramount, this means that recommendations within serious case reviews offer the opportunity to examine current practice, what's happening and how it happens, within the setting and externally with other organisations/agencies/service providers. Through this, practitioners can pass on information via their meeting agendas or promotion of their open door policy for raising concerns about practice or that anyone feels has the potential to contribute to or cause children's vulnerability.
A serious case review (SCR) takes place after a child dies or is seriously injured and abuse or neglect is thought to be involved. It looks at lessons than can help prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. A SCR should take place if abuse or neglect is known, or suspected, to have been involved and • a child has died • or a child has been seriously harmed and there is cause for concern about how organisations or professionals worked together to safeguard the child or • the child dies in custody • or a child died by suspected suicide. The Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB) follows statutory guidance for conducting a serious case review. The decisions to conduct an SCR should be made within one month of the notification of the incident.

Local Authority has ‘a duty to investigate when there is a reasonable cause to suspect that a child is suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. Following the death of Victoria Climbie in the year 2000, an independent inquiry highlighted many problems with how reports of neglect and child abuse were dealt with and found that vulnerable people in society were not being safeguarded. The Laming report led to the governments Every Child Matters paper and The Children Act 2004. The Every Child Matters paper is aimed at ensuring every child
To ensure effective teamwork and continual care of the children we must communicate well by keeping each other informed and aware of current situations going on around us. Communication involves Verbal (talking) and Non Verbal (non talking) communication. To be able to communicate effectively you need to try and consider their point of view and be very clear on what you are talking about and make sure the other person understands what you are talking about. The benefits I will have of effective communication in my work role will be my relationship with the children and their parents and the relationship with my work colleagues. With children you need to get down to their level to speak to them and make eye contact.
Upon investigating SCR I have found from Working Together to Safeguard Children Guidance 2010 chapter that. A SCR should always be conducted in situations when: * A child had died (including suicide), and abuse or neglect is known or suspected to be a factor, or a child has died in custody, in a Youth Offending institution, or secure children’s home or * A child has died whilst being detained under the Mental Health Act 2005. Working Together states that a SCR should also be considered when: * A child suffered a potentially life threatening injury or serious and permanent health or development impairment as a result of abuse or neglect or * A child has been seriously harmed as a result of suffering sexual abuse or * A child has been seriously harmed in a violent assault by another child or an adult and * The case gives rise to concerns about the way in which local professionals and services worked together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. This includes inter-agency and
Unit 202 | Safeguarding the welfare of children and young people | Title | Describe in great details your knowledge of what to do when children or young people are ill or injured, including emergency procedures. | Evidence Covered | | 2.1 Identify the signs and symptoms of common childhood illnesses | | 2.2 Describe the actions to take when children or young people are ill or injured | | 2.3 Identify circumstances when children and young people might require urgent medical attention | | 2.4 Describe the actions to take in response to emergency situations including: a) fires b) security incidents c) missing children or young people | | Most children and young people will at some stage or another in their life become unwell. And sometimes, the illness could start showing signs whilst the child or young person is at school. As a teaching assistant it is important to be able to recognise when a child or young person is unwell or is becoming unwell and also be able to differentiate when they are under the weather or whether they are pretending to be unwell: i.e: saying their stomach hurts but pointing to their chest.Identify the signs and symptoms of common childhood illnessesThe most obvious signs when a child or young person is unwell are to their faces which could either turn pink, red or suddenly go pale. Their temperature could be higher and their behaviour might change: they could start losing their concentration, start falling, a rash might appear or they might simply be very upset and start complaining about a pain which won’t go away.
Domestic violence refers to acts of violence that occur between people who have, or have had, an intimate relationship in domestic settings. Victims of domestic violence rely heavily on law enforcement; legal agencies to help them receive the help they need to either reconcile their relationship with their abusive partners or to escape from them. By offering full protection and treatment options to those seeking reconcile and offer full protection for those seeking to escape this violence so that they don’t have to put up or worry about retaliation from the offender. The criminal justice system is to bring justice for all, by convicting and punishing the guilty and stop them from offending further crimes, while protecting the innocent. It is responsible for perceiving crime and brings it to
CYP CORE 3.3 1.4 on wards 1.4 Inquiries and serious case reviews are undertaken when a child dies and abuse or neglect is suspected as being a contributing factor. The local safeguarding children board (LSCB) will also consider whether a serious case review should be conducted where a child has been seriously injured through abuse or neglect or been subjected to a serious sexual assault. The purpose of Serious Case Reviews carried out under this guidance is to establish whether there are lessons to be learnt from the case about the way in which local professionals and organisations work together to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. They identify clearly what those lessons are, how they will be acted on, and what is expected to change as a result; and as a consequence, improve inter-agency working and better safeguard and promote the welfare of children. For example, in the inquiry of Victoria Climbié’s case, the failure to follow proper procedure to protect her led to high-profile media attention because the people involved did not do their duty to keep her safe from the abuse she received from her guardians.
