Safeguarding & Information Sharing

Need some advice with regards a child in our care that is starting school in September!

I have posted a few times on here about this child, we did have concerns and a call was made to the SCB which I have documented and kept on file with reference numbers etc.

Now my question is this child leaves us in July to start school (same school that our Pre-School is based in!), do I share the information with the school or not?

Parents have split up and mum isn't very approachable (she has refused a home visit from the school!). Not sure where I stand with this, would it come under a need to know basis?

Any advice please!!

If you reported your concerns to social services and no further action was taken I don't think that you can pass any information on but for peace of mind check it out with your Local Authority safeguarding co-ordinator or social services again. What is important is that you keep all your records and make sure that you have a policy somewhere that says you keep such records and how long for. If anything happens in the future and you haven't been able to pass on your concerns you can at least show you acted on them whilst the child was with you.
