Following an audit recently completed by Milton Keynes Safeguarding Children Board (MKSCB) Quality Assurance Sub Group; in which a concern in relation to a transfer of school files was highlighted; MKSCB would like to take this opportunity remind educational establishments of the risks associated with the failure to transfer child and young person files between schools, in particular Child Protection/Safeguarding files.  Times of transition can be a worrying period for students and it is vitally important that information relating to children is transferred between establishments in a timely manner to ensure all appropriate information is shared and any vulnerabilities are known.  Many thanks for your support in advance.
