New Language

For all those who have learnt to use the word ‘Safeguarding’ as a very useful term for all aspects of Child Protection, it’s time to un-learn. CYP point to a Government memo detailing preferred terminology. It is claimed not to be a radical shift in policy, but is it seems, a LibCon erasing of phraseology that emerged under new Labour.
More confusion anyone? Here’s your new practice lingo:
