FAO DSL/Headteacher – Continium of Need Document; replacing theThreshold Document

Good afternoon everyone 

 As you will be aware, the Threshold Document has been due to be updated and we have been advised by the Buckinghamshire Safeguarding Children Partnership that the attached document (Continuum of Need) has been developed and will replace the Threshold document as from 23rd March 2021. 

A3 – COFN incorporating the Threshold guidance – February 2021 – 5[21758]

 As with the Threshold document, the Continuum of Need document is to be used by professionals when gathering information/decision with regards to safeguarding/child protection concerns in your own settings.  You will be able to find further information on the BSCP website


 Kind regards
