Practitioner guide - educational neglect

Classroom of pupils looking at teacher

There is no statutory definition of educational neglect. A task and finish group from across SCC education team developed this guidance as a result of recommendations from a Serious Case Review in 2019 and has since reviewed the guidance with wider colleagues. The Local Safeguarding Childrens Board, now Southampton Safeguarding Childrens Partnership has overview of the work.

Please view the Southampton City Council Practitioner Guidance Document - Educational Neglect for more information.
