Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership
Welcome to the Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership
An early update for you this week as the Coalition are taking a well-deserved long bank holiday weekend break from Friday to Monday.
We wanted to signpost you below to several items this week: a report with a forward from our Chair, Sir Norman Lamb, a recent briefing produced by our lovely hosts Centre for Mental Health and highlights of this weeks news.
With schools reopening next week we wish all our children and young people a warm welcome back. For those who are worried about returning back to school Place2Be have put together a series of resources to support your child.

During the current COVID-19 arrangements, more people will be volunteering and coming across people and situations they have not seen before.
As a volunteer is important you create a safe and welcoming environment, where everyone is respected and valued, this behaviour is at the heart of safeguarding. It’s about making sure you play a part in identifying or preventing harm, harassment, bullying, abuse and neglect. It’s also about being ready to respond safely and well if there is a problem. Safeguarding children is really important. A child or young person means anyone under the age of 18 – this means protecting individual children from abuse and maltreatment or preventing harm to children’s health or development.
An interactive webinar safeguarding training is available for anyone supporting the COVID19 outreach effort. To find out more please contact LSCB.Administrator@newham.gov.uk.
If you are worried about a child call 020 3373 4600 (9am – 5.15pm) OR 020 8430 2000 (other times), if it is an emergency dial 999.

Go to A&E
In the last couple months many parents may have been worried to take their children to A&E due to covid-19. Here is what some Newham children’s and young people have to say about it.
Safeguarding children is everyone’s responsibility and the purpose of these web pages is to encourage the widest possible participation in the work of Newham Safeguarding Children Partnership.
As part of this, the board will :
- develop child protection procedures and policies
- ensure child protection work is of a consistently high standard
- arrange training for staff who work with children, parents and families
- raise awareness generally about the need to protect children and how members of the public can help.
