ContactPoint counters terrorism…

Another miracle wrought by the ‘Every Child Matters’ agenda:

Information sharing is helping to combat Islamic radicalisation of teenage boys and tackle gang culture, Lambeth’s director of children’s services said last week. Phyllis Dunipace explained the approach at Children Now’s information sharing conference in Manchester last week.

She said information sharing was allowing schools in the south London borough to raise concerns about individual pupils who teachers suspect may be involved with Islamic extremists or criminal gangs.

Her final comment is spot-on:

“We’ve got to recognise there are some things happening in our society that we ignore at our peril”

Indeed.
