Local protocols are guidance and procedures which all practitioners in Leeds should follow to support their work with children and young people in Leeds.
The following protocols have been recently updated:
- Bruising in Non-independently Mobile Children - updated to reflect the change in terminology from Mongolian Blue Spot to Congenital Dermal Melanocytosis (CDM)
- Concerns Resolution Process
- Domestic Violence and Abuse: School and Further Education Notifications (Leeds Joint Agency Protocol)
- Intimate Care Policy
Please take time to familiarise yourself with the changes to these protocols and how they impact on your practice.
If you are the safeguarding lead for your organisation, please ensure that you disseminate and implement each local protocol as per the instructions at the top of each protocol and update your Organisational Safeguarding Assessment to provide assurance to the LSCP.
