SALFORD KIDS HIGH RISK AGAIN
 

Star date: 28th May 2010

SALFORD COUNCIL CAN'T EVEN SPELL `SAFEGAURDING' NEVER MIND DO IT!

So, after all that happened last year – and the year before, and the year before that and the year before that etc – over the shocking state of Salford City Council's dire attempts to safeguard our kids, the subject is still `HIGH RISK' according to the latest Council `Strategic Risk Register'.

Not surprising really because the Council can't even spell "safegaurding"…Oh, and confidential Child Protection reports are being left on the streets too!

Full stury hear…

So, Jill Baker, Head of Children's Services, has been sacked; loads of staff at the department have left - and Councillor John Warmisham, who refused to resign as Lead Member for Children's Services, has been shunted out of harms way in the post local election re-shuffle to Salford's excellent Adult Services (God help them!). But still our kids are High Risk.

The latest Salford Council `Strategic Risk Register' puts safeguarding in a big red High Risk box, stating "Practice in safeguarding children may develop with insufficient pace or sustainability".

The report goes on to describe all the great measures that are in place – `report cards', `monitoring of progress', `project management' and other such waffle - but the fact remains that the safeguarding of our kids is still `High Risk', er, as it was in the previous `Strategic Risk Register'. 

Perhaps the Council should learn to spell the word `Safeguarding' which would be a great start. The report is titled `Safegaurding'

PS. Would the Council like me to return a confidential Child Protection Conference report, complete with names, addresses and full family history, handed into the Salford Star after it was found on the street for anyone to see?

Just e-mail maryburns@salfordstar.com , ask nicely and I'll return it…

Update: 7pm 28th May

Earlier today Salford Council did ask nicely and the Confidential document was returned, after it had been passed around The Racecourse pub...only joking.

The problem is that the Council said they hadn't lost it, that none of their reports had gone missing. Very strange. Apparently, `several' other people had access to the document with SALFORD CITY COUNCIL stamped across it, and it could have been one of them who left it lying in the street for anyone to see. That's very reassuring...

'COMMUNISM IS FOR THE CHILDREN' SAYS SUBVERSIVE PEPPA PIG

Bizarre graffiti art has appeared near Salford Central Station depicting two delighted looking Peppa Pigs by the slogan 'Communism is for the children'. The art has led to much amusement and bemusement but is probably related to China banning the popular kids' cartoon.

SALFORD QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
