How Referrals work

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

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