Ensuring children and young people’s safety and welfare in the work setting is an essential part of safeguarding. While children are at school, practitioners act in ‘loco parentis’ while their parents are away. As part of their legal and professional obligations, practitioners hold positions of trust and a duty of care to the children in their school, and therefore should always act in their best interests and ensure their safety – the welfare of the child is paramount (Children Act 1989). The Children Act 2004 came in with the Every Child Matters (ECM) guidelines and greatly impacted the way schools look at the care and welfare of pupils. Children and young people should be helped to learn and thrive and be given the opportunity to

“I would, but I don’t remember her number.” When in emergencies kids usually turn to their electronics to contact others for help. Students want to have reassurance and know that if any inconvenience occur they can reach their parents or others as soon as possible. Most parents and children like to stay in touch with one another at all times. Especially if there's a change of plans after school or if there's any accidents that appeared and need to be evacuated immediately. Aside from, rivals say that students are most likely to lose their cell phones. In the meantime, students would be responsible and put it in a safe place at the appropriate time. For these reasons, cell phones should be tolerated on school property in cases of

Therefore in this scenario, the LA have the duty to investigate the number of concerns which have come up about Ewan and Callum. The red flags in this scenario are that Ewan, who is 9, and Callum, who is 13, have both suffered physically with bruises and a black eye. Both of their school attendances are poor and they have been acting aggressively during school. Ewan was also looking underweight and does not socialise with his friends. More concerns are that it is difficult getting into contact with their mother, Julie. The family house is not a healthy or happy environment as it is very untidy and dirty, Julie’s boyfriend also threatened the social worker Boris. Boris also stated that Julie was agitated which may indicate mental health problems or that she is a drug abuser. All this information is extremely alarming, therefore the LA have the duty of investigating this and protecting the children from harm.

After the incident with Victoria Climbie another care about a child who was neglected was published. Baby P was failed the same way that Victoria was. The baby suffered abuse in the same area as Victoria Climblie and the Children Act 2004 was enforced before Baby P was born. This suggests that although the Act was present, different area provide different standards of
The case of ‘Katelynn Sampson’ is one of the several sad cases that we often hear of which always leads to the laws surrounding children’s safety be amended or developed. I find it disturbing that a young child’s life had to be taken for proper recommendations ensuring the safety of children is done. I deem the suggestions to do compulsory training for children’s aid workers and law enforcement; extension to children’s aid society hours and corresponding communications between them and others involved in the child’s life are great. However, the recommendation for social workers to work with students without parental consent seems a little extreme to me. I consider this proposal should be based on the students age as many parents will
