Escalation of Concerns

Professional curiosity and challenge are essential if we are to make children and young people safer. To help staff, the CHSCB has issued the simple escalation policy below.

Our Curiosity, Challenge and Escalation page contains further guidance on maintaining respectful uncertainty, spotting disguised compliance (learning from SCR Child M) and the importance of holding difficult conversations / escalating when appropriate.
