Today I had a child protection matter at school. I went to find a particular child protection officer who said that she was about to go to a meeting so I would have to find someone else, she reeled off a few names. I tried ringing those ppl and no one picked up. I then rang the admin office, and someone told me that so and so was a child protection officer. So I went to her and she had someone in her office. I knocked on the door and said are you child protection officer, she said yes and beckoned me to go on. Now this woman is senior to me, so even though I was conscious of the visitor, but thought because she was ok then it would be ok. Once I told her, she then proceeded to tell me the girl was an attention seeker etc. At this point the initial child protection officer came in the room and smiled at everyone and told me to gi with her so she can deal with it. I went back to her office, where she told me off for telling the other 'officer' who want a child protection officer!!!!! And that she wasn't trained!!!!!! And that she had a visitor who we didn't know, who heard!!! I apologized and said admin had told me. Because I was so mortified she eased up. What concerns me is that the other woman said she was a child protection officer and she wasn't!!!! I'd like yo report it but I think she is well likedby SMT, it would be my word against hers plus she ua close friends with the real child protection officer I dealth with today. What to do? Apologies for lack of proper English, but I'm using my mobile to share this.
