Schools, safeguarding, emotional abuse, and parental alienation

In April 2016 Derek Thomas, a Conservative MP for St Ives asked the Secretary of State for Education, whether the Department of Education issues guidance to schools on how to identify and manage incidences of parental alienation.

Edward Timpson the Minister of State (Department for Education) responded as follows:

Protection from abuse and neglect is a fundamental right of all children and young people, regardless of their family situation, and the government will continue to review how schools, police, social services and other agencies work together to protect all children.

The Department published updated statutory guidance in 2015 on Keeping Children Safe in Education and Working Together to Safeguard Children. Schools and colleges must have regard to this guidance when carrying out their duties to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.

All school and college staff should be aware of the various forms of abuse, including emotional harm, so that they are able to identify children in need of help and support and know what action to take. This would include recognising where children are suffering as the result of family relationship breakdown.
