Safeguarding Children:  Resolving professional disagreement

"Effective working together depends on an open approach and honest relationships between agencies. Problem solving and resolution is an integral part of professional co-operation .....

and joint working to safeguard children and young people.

There may be occasions where individuals / agencies working with children and families disagree on how best to keep children safe and promote their welfare

The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Safeguarding Children Board is clear that there must be respectful challenge whenever a professional or agency has a concern about the action or inaction of another. The aim must be to resolve a professional disagreement at the earliest possible stage, always keeping in mind that that the child and young person's safety and welfare is paramount.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Safeguarding Children Board has updated its Resolving Professional Differences (Escalation) Policy which can now be found both attached and on the LSCB website http://www.safeguardingpeterborough.org.uk/children-board/professionals/procedures/escalation_policy/

Please can you ensure that this is cascaded throughout your organisations and is made available to all staff"
