Tackling Emerging Threats to Children Team and Combined School Health Hub

The Tackling Emerging Threats to Children Team in partnership with the Schools’ Health Hub Co-ordinators, will work across the county on a locality basis. The team has been established to support schools with the safeguarding and health and well-being agendas and will focus on developing best practice in response to new and existing “threats”.

The team’s remit includes a wide range of sensitive issues including: radicalisation and extremism; child sexual exploitation; female genital mutilation; forced marriage and honour based abuse; online safety; bullying in all its forms including prejudice based incidents and hate crime; sexual health and healthy relationships; emotional health & well-being; healthy weight and nutrition; alcohol and substance misuse; smoking cessation; resilience. Acting as a single point of contact for universal services, the team will focus on developing its own section of the school’s portal website as the main mechanism for sharing best practice.
