I have a massive interest in our children (I used to be one – my wife sometimes tell me I still am one). Seriously though, I try to put something back through being a school governor; having been at Monkspath Junior Infants School for 20+ years and the Federated Special Schools of Forest Oak and Merstone. In fact my route onto the council was through getting more and more interested in local politics via school governing meetings.
There have been too many cases of child abuse and here in Solihull it is taken very seriously. I have attached a few documents about safeguarding and how each and every one of us can get involved if we see something that we feel is wrong. If you see something that you think is wrong REPORT IT. No call is dismissed and thought of as time wasting. We would rather have too many calls than too few – a child may be free from abuse because of one call.
I have attached the Solihull Local Safeguarding Children’s Board Annual Report and a small poster that you may wish to print off and post on your work’s notice board. I have also provided a link to the council’s website where there is more information: http://www.solihull.gov.uk/staysafe/20495.htm LSCB Annual Report parentsposterA31
