Safeguarding and Child Protection: 0-8 Years: Linking Theory and Practice
"This is a brilliant book and a godsend for anyone working in child care at any level. This will become the standard for child care -- it is quite simply the best book available anywhere on safeguarding children."
Michele Elliott OBE, Founder, Kidscape
Safeguarding children and young people will provide you with essential information to ensure high standards for child protection across early years settings, schools and play provision.
The book covers key legislation and guidance, with clear implications for practice. Full explanation of terms, examples to encourage reflection and scenarios all support a full understanding of this complex subject.
This new edition integrates recent developments over vetting and barring and brings readers up to date with changes in the system for safeguarding. New content reflects increased concern about health issues like childhood obesity and a safe approach to use of image technology on mobile phones. Practitioners are given the tools to address continuing dilemmas around partnership with families, the role of physical contact and how to blend safeguarding with best practice for equality.
