This outlines the criteria for complaints to be considered by Our Safeguarding Children Partnership (OSCP) and how OSCP will deal with such complaints. A  flow chart is included.

The OSCP is only able to consider complaints which fall into one of two categories:

     i) A complaint about OSCP

     ii) A complaint about any aspect of OSCP multi-agency partnership child safeguarding provision

Resolving Professional Differences Policy

Most disagreements can be resolved through discussion and negotiation.

This policy identifies potential areas of disagreement, guidance on preventing disputes and procedures to be followed when disagreements or disputes cannot be resolved through discussion and negotiation between professionals at front line level.

This was formerly referred to as the Escalation Policy.
