Child Protection

Child Protection

Inverclyde Council Education has Child Protection Guidelines and Procedures which all schools are required to follow. Education Services work very closely with other agencies namely Strathclyde Police, Social Work Services, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and the Children’s Reporter to support children.

Common responsibilities of all staff are to protect children from abuse and exploitation, to respond appropriately when abuse is identified, and to ensure whenever possible that all children are able to exercise their right to be raised in a warm, stimulating and safe environment with the support of staff, their families and carers.

If you are concerned that a child is being abused or neglected you should contact one of the following:

Social Work Services Headquarters - Telephone: 01475 714100
Social Work Standby Out of Office Hours (Emergency and Public Holidays) Freephone 0800 811505
Police Family Protection Unit - Telephone: 0141 532 6160
Reporter to Children's Hearing - Telephone: 01475 720221
