Liaison with other professionals

  1. Use actual stories and pictures rather than ‘interpretations’
  2. Ask permission of pupils and parents for stories to be shared
  3. Precis themes rather than details that might be confidential
  4. Use professional judgement of ‘What is in the best interests of the child’
  5. Where there are concerns about child protection,  contact the school’s child protection officer immediately.
