How Referrals Work:

1. You report your concern to a member of the team.

2. They will consult with Matt Atkinson (if not referred directly to him).

3. The following three steps are then decided upon:

    - Step One: No referral to Social Care but School may open an Early Help intervention.

    - Step Two: Referral is made to Social Care and they make a decision in one day whether it proceeds further.

    - Step Three: If a child is in immediate danger we contact the police.

4. A member of the team will let you know the outcome of your referral when appropriate.

5. If you are not happy with the outcome having referred a child please consult with Matt Atkinson who will then advise about contacting the NSPCC whistleblowing hotline on 0800 028 0285.
