In addition to the joint NCSCP / NSCP Practice Guidance that can be accessed above, there is some Practice Guidance which is for Nottingham City only:
Indicators of Child Abuse
Nottingham City Safeguarding Children Partnership and Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership have made a leaflet to support people to identify when a child is experiencing or is at risk of experiencing abuse.
Excellence in Safeguarding Children Tool
NCSCP has developed the Excellence in Safeguarding Children Tool. This guidance includes learning from Serious Case Reviews and practice guidance and is designed to help practitioners address the issues raised.
Appropriate Language Guidance
Guidance has been developed to help professionals to use appropriate language when communicating about children and young who are experiencing child sexual exploitation or criminal exploitation.
Language implying that the child or young person is complicit in any way, or responsible for the crimes that have happened or may happen to them, must be avoided. The guidance provides lots of suggestions on how to express concerns and describe what the child or young person is experiencing that avoid any suggestion that the child is to blame.
