Invitation to Head Teachers
The LSCB is seeking to extend the membership of its Board by the inclusion of additional primary and senior Head Teacher representatives. In recognition of the importance of the role of schools in safeguarding children and promoting their welfare, input from Head Teachers has always played a valuable part in the work of the LSCB. The Board consists of senior leaders from a wide range of organisations working with children, young people and their families including children’s social care, the police, health, probation, and a range of other agencies, plus excellent representation from the voluntary and community sector, and three Lay Members who are local residents. Meetings are usually lively, with challenging discussions about safeguarding issues in Redbridge and how we can make a difference in terms of outcomes for children and young people. This opportunity will appeal to Head Teachers who want to contribute to strengthening safeguarding arrangements in Redbridge, who are able to provide insight from an education perspective and have a commitment to multi-agency working. The Board meets four times a year (January, April, July, and October), outside of school holidays, usually on a Tuesday morning from 10:00 to 13:00 in Ilford. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Lesley Perry, LSCB Business Manager via mailto:Lesley.Perry@Redbridge.gov.uk or on 020 8708 5282 for an informal discussion. You can read more about the Board, its membership, structure, Business Plan priorities etc. on the website.
