Inter-Agency Escalation Policy

This Inter-Agency Escalation Policy aims to resolve professionals’ differences in line with the London Safeguarding Children Procedures. All professionals have a duty to act assertively and proactively to ensure that a child’s welfare is kept as the paramount consideration in all professional activity to ensure their needs are met appropriately.

Our ambitions

We want to ensure all young people in Wandsworth have a great future, where:

  • Children are happy and have good opportunities to develop skills
  • Children are safe both at home and in the communities where they live
  • Children are enabled to live healthy and fulfilling lives
  • Children receive a good education, suited to their individual needs, which supports them in staying safe and achieving their potential
  • Looked after children feel safe, secure, cared for and happy in an environment where they can thrive and succeed
