Woman’s Hour

Woman’s Hour majored on Contactpoint today, with yours truly trying to correct some of the misinformation that is flying around. A shame that the new Under Secretary didn’t seem to realise that Contactpoint will contain a great deal more than a simple name and address, and I didn’t have the opportunity to correct that. Still, the item is first on the menu here.

Update: Several people have asked me what information will actually be on Contactpoint. There’s so much that I’ve put it here in a separate post

    Am I right in thinking that the Baroness was wrong to say that the school would not be recorded on the ContactPoint database?

    You are, Carlotta. There was so much to deal with in a short time that I didn’t have the chance to pick that one up. Contactpoint will show: child’s name and address, d.o.b., education provider, doctor, health visitor, midwife, names and addresses of both parents, agencies working with a child/family, whether eCAF has been completed and whether there is social services involvement.

  4. […] will be on Contactpoint? Following on from yesterday’s post about Woman’s Hour, it seems like a good idea to list the information that will be on a child’s Contactpoint […]
